This is just so amusing... all of it.
How about this? Instead of duck hunting or worm shooting... You could just use the ramrod for what it is intended for, i.e. seating the charge in the bore so it goes off completely and correctly.
Anyone who shoots a ramrod during an event is publicly ridiculed for being an idiot and either leaves the hobby or grows up and learns how to do it right and safely. Officers and NCO's who fail to supervise their men and let a ramrod get shot lose their straps or stripes and go back to the ranks for their incompetence.
After a year or two of events where rammers are required to be used everyone should be trained up to do it right as opposed to doing it wrong and we'll have cut down all the excess rank wearers in the hobby and increased the average company strength by returing said incompetent strap and stripe wearers to the ranks where they should have been all along.
THEN we can get to worrying properly about other pressing matters like what bugle call is sounded first in the morning or how to combat the insidious creep of waistlines and age in the reenacting ranks.
