Re: barrel ignition..
I put two shots of 4F in the pan. I used to tilt the gun so the powder would lay against the barrel in the pan. I had a buddy of mine who has muzzleloader hunted for years tell me. You put the powder in the pan,close the frizzen, and tilt the gun so the powder is away from the barrel in the pan. What this actually does is it blows the flame into the barrel making the gun go off ALOT quicker,considering the touch hole is no obstructed. Loading the pan and firing it this way keeps the touchhole from fouling so much.I also replaced my touchhole with an Uncle Mike's which is alittle bigger than factory. hope this helps.
