You guys never had any issues?
this can be a repetitive process. The small space might only allow a few grains, which might not push it completely out. If it doesnt come all the way out, remove flash hole again, add more powder this time, and then RESEAT THE BALL!!

Don't forget to completely reseat the ball.

I have heard it said you aren't a real blackpowder shooter till you have loaded a bullet without powder and have shot your ramrod. Gee you and I are halfway there.

Re: Now I did it

CO2 discharger or compressed air is the safest. The old 4f behind the ball is fine at the range with no one around but not something you do at home or in a group of people. It can go off. CO2 discharger will be the best 30 buks you ever spend.

Re: Now I did it
