Muzzleloader?

Seems like something one could cook up in there garage with a Martini to me.
We have tools that use a similar shell for shooting electrical connectors on and off.
I'm not sure how far something like this would go but it may be appealing to some. I don't really care for it but it's interesting none the less.
I wonder what would happen with a short started projie or if someone left the RR in the barrel?

A solution in search of a problem.
I have 3 H&R muzzle loaders,, I can load and reload WAYyyyy quicker than that contraption.

Interesting yes, cost effective not so much. 26.99 for 10 pack of the sticks. That’s what I pay for a pound of 4198 for my smokeless muzzleloaders. Also imagine some states won’t allow it.

I dont get the appeal of that.

longer range accuracy maybe for hunters who don't want to develop custom load and take the time to load consistently?

Too dependent on those powder sticks. If I can't find any of a huge assortment of pellets, I can get the appropriate loose powder.

You still have to load it. Just use pellets if you want easy consistency. Looks like an expensive gimmick to me.
