Lessons learned are important. When at the range, I swab after every shot. I use Hoppes bore lube/cleaner. Shoot, wet patch, dry patch, and then re-load.

I know a guy who did the same thing you did. He decided to try and shoot it out.
He took out the touch-hole liner and put "some" powder in. Put the liner back in and put his rifle in a vise STILL IN HIS BASEMENT! Used a string to pull the trigger, and shot a hole right thru his furnace.

Things can go wrong, use your head and deal with them intelligently. Sounds like you did fine.
