    Got home after last day of the elk season. Next day I remember my 54 is still loaded, no problem. I take out nipple and blow the charge out with rubber tipped nozzle.

    What Muzzleloading Stuff Did You Do Today?

    Shot my Dixie Hawken and Bobby Hoyt rebarreled New Englander. Hawken did fine but zero went to the right on New Englander. It's done this twice now. Driving me nuts!

    Lee R.E.A.L. bullets undersized ?

    Get yourself a bottle of Lee liquid alox. Read up on it. Easy peasy and works great. I've used it on Lee REALS for years. Love it.👍

    Lee Reel Bullet lube

    I just roll in a bottle with Lee liquid alox. Works great after drying. No leading at all.
