Re: Traditions Pa Pellet
Pellets need more heat to go off, compared to blackpowder. So the pan charge getting there is the first battle. Pull the vent liner and check for any metal shaving that might be inside the threaded area of the hole into the bore.
And since you are using pellets, maybe open the vent up a little more. No trickle out of loose powder, if it is a small amount bigger. Using a 1/64" increment of bits, check the hole size, it's most times 1/16 (4/64), and go one size bigger (5/64).
