If you do try a .495 ball,I would use a .010 patch,What set up are you using now?If you are using a .490 ball now and a .015 patch,you could us a .018 patch with the .490 ball.

I shoot .495 balls and 18th patch in my Green Mt. barrel it will shoot one ragged hole groups at 50 yds off of the bench if i do my part. give them a try and don't be afraid to try the heavier patching with them.

Try the .495's with your ticking it cant hurt.

I found my accuracy much improved by switching to .495
I swab with a damp patch between shots.

I would not recomend using a .010 patch.You will get blowby.Get a box of 100 and try different charges along with patch thickness and lubes.Before you know it you will have burned thru those 100 balls and had fun doing so.
