Cleaning between shots
What is your process for cleaning between shots at the range? I am new to muzzleloading, and I shoot triple 777 pellets out of my TC Triumph. Each shot leaves a ring of fouling at the bottom of the bore where the charge is packed.
I've been running a patch with solvent, then a dry patch between each shot. Even so, after five to ten shots the accuracy of my shots starts to diminish, with more unpredictable fliers. I think it may have something to do with that ring of fouling, which I can only seem to get out with a bronze brush (pain to use at the range).
I've heard that licking a patch and running that through followed by a dry patch is the best way to do it. What do you all think?
