Anyone tried muzzleloader bullets?

I saw these at walmart today and thought that they would make superior ballistics, especially if you could get the right rifling twist that the bullets use. they sell them with just the bullets no casings or powder. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTtaG-xUEarpROvR41ETKN6qbabpZlh...

I am looking to be able to shoot through atleast 1/4" of plywood but i may be over-anticipating this build lol. Also would i be in need of a chamberfan for thi...

Butane through ball valve ?

I'm working on a new 1/2" barrel advanced combustion, my first advanced so i figured i'd start small so i don't blow my hand off. Anyway, i am trying to find a way to get the butane in the gun, i understand the concept of the butane syringe, i just dont want to have to unscrew a port screw to inject...
