Can you shoot a ramrod out of a BP rifle barrel

Was watching the old movie "Across the Wide Missouri" At the end Clark Gable shoots an attacking bad guy while loading his BP rifle and he still had the ram rod still in the barrel. Thus stopping the guy with the ramrod

Now if Mr Gable was in the middle of loading and he had a ball rammed down the barrel and still had the ram rod in the barrel would that work...???? Would the barrel bust with all the added pressure of the ramrod???
