I was just out shooting my TC Renegade and lo and behold, I loaded a patched ball WITHOUT putting any powder in.

I tried half a dozen times to get it out with the ball puller but I just keep getting threads full of lead.

Is there any other way to get the ball out safely other than removing the breach end? (which is very difficult)

Thanks

Thanks, I had thought of removing the touch hole and putting in some powder(there is room) but wasn't sure how safe that would be.

You guys never had any issues?
this can be a repetitive process. The small space might only allow a few grains, which might not push it completely out. If it doesnt come all the way out, remove flash hole again, add more powder this time, and then RESEAT THE BALL!!

Don't forget to completely reseat the ball.

The old 4f behind the ball is fine at the range with no one around but not something you do at home or in a group of people. It can go off.
Huh? I'm confused? You want it to go off, that is the point!!
