Unloading

At the end of the day of hunting with your In-Line, do you guy's unload your gun or just remove the primer? In the passed I left it loaded and removed the cap. And I only do that it if, i'm going out 2 or 3 days in a row. Is that a good thing to do, is it good for the powder? I walk right out back and hunt. So I dont break any laws with the loaded gun in the truck.

Re: Unloading

As long as the primer is out it’s considered “un-loaded”. I have left the powder in for the whole week and never had a problem. If it was a rainy, wet day however, I will remove the breach plug and remove the powder. FT

Re: Unloading

If it is pouring down rain and I'm not going to get out for a couple days I'll unload it. The Omega is supposed to be 100% waterproof but I don't don't want to risk it. As long as the ignition source is removed with a muzzleloader it is not considered loaded.

Re: Unloading

it's still not a good idea to keep it loaded in the house. the powder could draw moisture. I would just find an old log or stump and fire the shot.

Re: Unloading

If the breach plug is easily removed...save the sabot or power belt. These things are too expensive these days.

Eliminates a messy clean-up also. FT

Re: Unloading

I unload it, (fire it), but this year I'll have the opportunity to go all week so I'm not sure what I'll do this year, I might let it go overnight, but not all week.

Re: Unloading

I remove primer & leave gun locked in truck. Suggest not taking inside warm due to possible condensation forming. Have done this for years & never a problem.

This is something that I would like to have clarified . My manual for my flinter says that it is considered loaded when the charge is in the baral . Which is it ? If the fact is that it is not loaded in till the primer in in then some one should tell them that they are misleading .
