Can someone tell me where i can fish for freshwater eel ?

No, it will NOT explode, nor will the mercury cause the pellet to expand any more than it would without it. Not only that, if you shoot an animal with it and kill it, the mercury will poison the meat, and YOU, if you eat it. If you DON'T kill the animal with the shot and it escapes, it will die a horrible death from mercury poisoning, which will piss off Mother Nature and cause you incredible amounts of bad karma.

No. Back in the 1930's or thereabouts there seems to have been a minor fad of trying to fill the hollowpoint in bullets with mercury and a plug, among other things. Neither this nor any of the other experiments amounted to much, and it was the much more effective designs like the Nosler Partition that really made bullet construction jump to a different level.

Can I buy a black powder pistol kit in Kansas, if my drivers liscense is from Michigan?

Mercury will not cause a bullet to explode. If you drill out a bullet, put a drop of mercury inside, and plug the end, when the bullet hits something hard the mercury will slam forward into the end of the bullet, causing the end to pop out. Mercury fulmitate is a contact explosive. You could hypothetically fill a hollow point bullet with it, but it's very hard, smelly, poisonous, and illegal to make, and it's as likely to go off in the pan or when you load or fire a round as when it strikes a target. No explosive could be put into a bellet to make it explode- even if the entire pellet were made out of an explosive, the pellet would still be too small to do any real damage.
