Reminds me of the time I shot off my '58 Remington Navy BP revolver. My dad and I couldn't see why they recommended to fill the cylindar with bore butter after loading, since the lead balls fit so tight...so I didn't. I touched off a shot, and the coffee can I was aiming at went by-by. We were sure impressed with the power of that .44, till we realized that the charge on either side of the one lined up with the barrel also fired. We use bore butter now.
