After binge watching the now canceled post-apocalypse series Revolution, Deuce and Guns decided to find out what would happen if we lost the ability to make smokeless powder.
Making black powder is relatively easy. Assuming modern powder supplies ran short years into the apocalypse, could you use black powder in your modern weapons?
Deuce and Guns filled a magazine with some homemade .300 blackout black powder cartridges.
As many viewers will be quick to guess before watching the video, these cartridges aren’t powerful enough to cycle the weapon. Basically your black powder AR will be straight pull, not semi-auto.
