Stuck bullet.

I bought a cheap traditions cap lock to use while driving doe.I cleaned it out real good,popped a few caps and loaded 100gr of 777 pellets behind a .240gr xtp.I'm not a fan of the pellets but that's all I could find and assumed they'd be fine with a cap lock.Anyway,the caps go off but nothing happens.I took the nipple off and cleaned everything out but it still won't go bang.I'm assuming the problem is with the pellets but in any event,I have a sabot stuck in the barrel.This gun has no removable breech plug so it has to come back out the way it went in.Any suggestions?

They make a ball remover for just that purpose....It`s like a rod cleaner, but has a screw tip on the end...Good Luck...

I have one but it's a hollow point bullet and I don't think I'd be able to get enough threads in it.Besides,it's pretty tight

I have used co2 dischargers with good success. Most come with nipple adaptors to fit cap locks plus flinters. Be sure to point in a safe direction as load will come out with considerable speed.

I've pulled jacketed hollow points with a bullet puller and never had a problem. In any case, once you do get it out forget about using pellets with #11 caps, they just don't reliably ignite pellets. Use loose powder or substitute of your choice.

That CO2 disharger is the way to go, jusy make sure the rifle is pointed down range at a backstop.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Pull the touch hole/nipple out and work some FFFFg in.MAKE SURE BULLET IS SEATED ON CHARGE! Replace touch hole/nipple and fire.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Compressed air, blow gun attachment with rubber end. Remove nipple, Point safety down range. I've donethis many time, especially at the end of late season if for some reason gun was still loaded.
