    There are some very cool positives on this.

    I did read one article that said that these hulls will be reloadable, so you would be able to tailor your load if you wanted. I wonder if the 888 powder does not have to be compressed, it seems like the 100gr and 120gr versions would either have a set of filler wads or there does not need to be compression like any of the other BP substitutes.

    You are still loading through the muzzle and you still have to prime afterward, so the time to load compared to pellets or pre-measured loads will not change.

    I think it would still be significantly faster. Ram a bullet down the barrel until it stops, grab one of these fire sticks out of your pocket that already has the primer taped in, slam it in the breech and you're good to go.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    Not much different than drop 2 pellets, ram a bullet down the barrel until it stops, grab a primer and put it in the breech.

    I had pre-measured charges in my pack in some glass vials. I also had an old crosman pellet box with lubed patches and balls ready to go. I was able to shoot and reload in no time with a side lock. I guess I do not see there being too much of a difference with what we had before.

    Fair enough, I didn't think of it through pre measured charges. I've never had the opportunity to reload and shoot again.

    I got lucky, hit a tree shooting at a doe, reloaded and as my dad was still slowly poking through the bush a fawn came bounding out and bang.

    was very quick to load done that way.

    A very cool experience.

    Wouldn't it make things faster and easier to change muzzle loader season to single shot season.

    No, you still have to load the bullet through the muzzle.
