I had shot three rounds, adjusting the sights as I like them, and I had been swabbing the barrel between shots with a damp rag. THe last time got too damp, ... A little smoke and such came out the end of the barrel after a mild noise. I waited and then took the breech plug out of the CVA Wolf (thank God for breech plugs). I was surprised to see the barrel empty except for the crud. I ran a patch through and put it back together. I couldn't find the errant ball and it worked fine with a barely damp patch (pretty cruddy rag). I had never experienced anything like that. Anyone else have a misfire? This thing is really fun to shoot, but I was not looking forward to removing the ball from that barrel! Probably, a fired 209 cap fired between loads would have dried it enough, but I had to learn.

Dave :eek:

Silly flatlanders, use a dab of T/C 1000+ bore butter before you start.
Then use thier pre-soaked patches.

You can fire until yer finger gets sore of pullin the trigger, and you will never have to swab the barrel.

Oh yeah keep ALL petrolium based oils away from your bore stuffer
