Years ago I managed to stick a bronze brush in the bottom of a .50 Hawken. Thought I'd broken the brush in, guess not.

As I flailed around in vain to remove the item I managed to twist off the wire too. Perfect, now we're getting somewhere.

Not having a 30" needle nose pliers available I tried my go-to response of staring at it while invoking various chants. No luck.

After calming down a bit, I pulled the nipple and
dribbled in about 5 grains of 4F from my flinter.
Not quite enough, a repeat using 10 grains shot it out.

The brush is on the shop wall to reinforce my one basic rule: "Try not to be any more stupid than you can help."

On the other hand I truly now can say I have a brush load for my rifle. Get it? Brush load?

That's my line too. I once took both ml rifles to my brother's cottage so he could try them out. It was mid winter and nobody around. We had to snowshoe in the last 1/4 mile. Arrived on site and looked for my shooting bag. Left at home. No powder no ball and no caps. I call it having a stupid attack.

I would second this, if I could remember that I have lost my mind.
