    Poke em with a toothpick, north, south, east, west and center. Then put them under a desk lamp like MOA. Then switch to an over powder wad and hot glue.

    KCSO ... What is Dr. Ben's???? I've never heard of it and can't find any information about it. To remove really bad leading I learned to, and still do, clean and degrease the bore; plug the muzzle with a greased cork or rubber stopper and...

I'm a long time muzzle loader so I've been casting round ball for some time. Got interested in BPCR and started casting for that too. Compete locally, regionally, territorial and nationally, but the only person I have to beat is me.
