Notes on black powder shooting. The bores get nasty/sticky/dirty quickly. When in the field:

Put a mild charge down the barrel.

Follow with a standard paper wad.

Follow with a heavily oiled/greased patch.

Run a wet patch on a worm up-and-down the barrel a few times.

The combination of patches will wipe out most of the crud. You will be amazed at the filth that you have removed.

I am going to try Ballistol; endorsements from Othias and B.B. Pellitier are good enough for me!
