    Below is video of a gentleman using black powder verses smokeless. He talks a bit too much but there's always fast forward. He has a chronograph going showing velocities.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    I should have put this in Survival. Because if the supply of Smokeless powder stops. I suspect a bunch of folks are going to be making and using black powder in all types of stuff.

    I know I would.

    Well he proved that black powder will shoot in an AR platform but doesn't cycle the action. A mag fed bolt action would definitely be a better choice under those circumstances. I watched and enjoyed that TV series (Revolution). A battery powered red dot wouldn't be functional either. There was no electricity at all, not even battery power.

    I thought I was going to love it but it was too frustrating.
    • Guns are outlawed on penalty of death yet no one uses a suppressor. Several people get caught with guns because the sound of shooting brought the bad guys to them.
    • The sword fights were laughable. I couldn't count the number of times I thought "One cut! Right there! Your opponent left themselves open long enough that even I could have stuck 'em with the pointy end! The fight should be over!"
    When a TV program makes me yell at the screen, I give it up.

    Or if you still want an AR pattern, there are the pumps from Troy.
