Out of curiosity, have you inspected the barrel of the gun for any obstruction?

True! This is about the most mysterious problem we've had in long while not counting some posters who gave a cockamamy story without following up until everybody gave up on them.

" I think the proper thing to do is have a memorial service for it and scatter the remnant of the powder as fertilizer."

A total myth. It will not fertilize anything. Smokeless powder is insoluble and will not release any nitrogen to soil. Black powder would, and I imagine that is how the myth started.
