Now I did it

I was just out shooting my TC Renegade and lo and behold, I loaded a patched ball WITHOUT putting any powder in.

I tried half a dozen times to get it out with the ball puller but I just keep getting threads full of lead.

Is there any other way to get the ball out safely other than removing the breach end? (which is very difficult)

Thanks

Take the touch hole out and see if you can get some power behind the ball. You might have enough room. If so, put the touch hole back and let er' rip.

Compressed air and a rubber tipped blowgun is best. Remove the Touch hole plug, and be careful where the muzzle is pointed.

I made a tool on the end of a dial rod that has a screw in it , i place it down the barrel and tap it into the lead ball then drip rem oil down the barrel and pull easy , works everytime

Re: Now I did it

Thanks, I had thought of removing the touch hole and putting in some powder(there is room) but wasn't sure how safe that would be.

You guys never had any issues?

Re: Now I did it

After trickling some powder in there, make sure the ball is firmly on top of the powder FFFFG might be easier to get in there or FFFG.

Re: Now I did it

No issues with just a small amount of powder, you can even use 4f if you have a small tip on your pan powder.

Issues with no powder behind a ball, everyone gets at least one sometime!
