Smokeless Powder in the NMA

Hey ya Fellers,
I hope the new year is treating you all well. Anyway I came across a video on the tube where this feller is firing 4.6 ish grains of clays, 30 grains of corn meal, and a RB in his Pietta NMA. The revolver handled it just fine. And as interesting as this is I can't say I would ever try it. Have any of you heard this? And where might I find info on peak pressure that a load of this sort may produce? I believe that if you keep the pressure the same as with black then a smokeless load could safely be used. What say you?

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT, repeat, I DO NOT recommend anyone using or trying smokeless powder in a muzzleloading firearm. I do recommend you read and FOLLOW your manufacturers safety instructions included with your firearms.
