Are you bottling from already carbed beer in a keg? It's sort of a pain to buy the corker and cages, but you can do it easily enough.
Unless you're using a really thick bottle like a champagne bottle, you should avoid trying to carb in the bigger still wine bottles.
As the volume of the bottle increases, the force on the glass wall increases as well during the carb process. You can shatter the bigger bottles doing this. I'm told this is a sure fire way to shatter a growler.
