In lines & 209 primers.

If you are new at shooting one of these the primer will foul the little fire way to the powder shut ! It needs cleaned often to ?
Just thought i put this out there cause i learned the hard way.

Probably more likely it is blackpowder fouling blowing back into the hole?

2 years ago I shot a nice 8 point with my inline in Maryland. When I tried to reload I couldn't get the primer out. I saw the deer get up and make it back into the woods as I was overlooking a powerline but I could not follow up the shot. I had to call the outfitter to come and get me as I was out of service. We did recover the buck the next day. To get the primer out we had to take the gun apart back at the truck and carefully pry it out which took about a half hour. Now when I clean my gun I soak the breech plug over night in solvent then scrub it with a copper brush.

Nature of the beast. You will have the same issue with the nipple on a side lock percussion. Spent primer difficult to remove....debris from either the primer or powder creating a blockage. I carry a repair kit in the field. Tool to pry the spent primer off. Nipple wrench, new nipple, nipple pick. Snickers bar for my nerves. A CO2 discharger.


The percussion breach and nipple requires much attention in the cleaning process. I would guess an inline is no different.

I suggest carrying a 209 primer extractor for ease of reloading.
Usually you just can't reach in there and pluck the primer with your thumbnail.
But heed the good advice: A clean shootin' iron will generally serve you well.

Pretty much this. Most rifles come with a primer extractor. If not, they are fairly cheap. Mine is a small tool that holds several primers on it and has the extractor on one end. The other end is shaped to help put the unfired primer in place. And like was said; keep it clean and troubles are fewer.

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.
