Your right on the money about the toughness to load a shockwave!! I have yet to shoot at a deer with my muzzleloader this year though so I have not had the oppurtunity to have to reload from a treestand. I have given it some thought though and this is my conclusion. Number 1 just make my first shot count and #2 if for some reason I need another shot my adrenaline will be pumping so much that the shockwave will move down the barrel like butter.
You did some creative thinking rozman. Thanks for sharing it with us.
