Never heard of one of these. I do not believe you would catch me anywhere near it.

I found the site posted.  He responded with 'If you use 5 oz of rifle powder it would last for 100-150 firings.  If cannon grade powder of 3oz it would last for more firings. '   I'm just not capable of posting the article.
