The down side to that choice is considerable additional expense and less than optimum blast results. Your shot won’t be as good because your powder factor using cartridges will be significantly less that what you calculated for your drill pattern and hole size.

BlastMetriX UAV Improves Blast Design and Analysis

The new BlastMetriX UAV program from 3GSM GmbH allows quarries and mining operations to take advantage of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology to quickly, safely an accurately capture three-dimensional face profiles for enhanced visualization of the blast area. The flexible system is the right tool for surveying large blast sites and does not require the use of propriety UAVs. This allows operations to use existing drones in their fleet or locally source drone equipment to take surveying images.
