I want to test my 45cal Pedersoli muzzleloader with powder but no ball.
Can I cut a cardboard wad using a sharpened 45cal pistol case?
Will it come out of the barrel ok?

Why not just shoot a blank using a reduced main charge under a greased patch without a ball on top? I do that all the time when I go to the range to make sure the touch hole is clear before the first live round.

Just place a patch or wad of newspaper on top. That's what the reenactors do. GREAT taste in beverage by the way!
