Pulling a load, saboted bullet

Over the years I've had to pull a ball for various reasons. My question is, when you might have to pull a load on a closed breech side hammer (which I've done for various reasons over the years with a PRB) But If loaded with a sabot will the sabot generally come out with the bullet or would you need a longer screw to reach down into the sabot that was left in the bore? I know there are ball dischargers but when useing a screw will the sabot come out with the bullet? Thanks, John

Re: Pulling a load, saboted bullet

I've had it go both ways, probably depends on fouling. You just go back down with the screw and go right through the plastic, put it in full depth because you don't want the screw to pull out of the plastic. I had that happen and then I put a little powder in the flash hole (flintlock) and shot the plastic out.

I save the extracted bullets for future fouling shots.
