The time was when I would say a bad thing about minie, maxi, real or such other projectiles in a round ball gun. But I’ve mellowed with age and realize to each their own.Shoot minies and you don't need to swab between shots.
Im sure glad some have mellowed with time. 10 odd years ago when i joined I thought a lynch mob was gonna form when i talked about minies in my Navy Arms Musketoon. Some who have passed on acted like minie balls would bounce off a whitetail, and a prb would shoot thru a railroad crosstie.The time was when I would say a bad thing about minie, maxi, real or such other projectiles in a round ball gun.

Some folks eat ketchup on t bone, put macaroni in chili, mix fine whiskey with some sweet soda.
One can shoot a conical in a round ball gun. It’s ok. Just do it in private and wash your hands afterwards
A squirt of M.A.P. or alcohol down the barrel then quickly ram the last patch home shooting the liquid out the flash hole or nipple and you're golden, saves on caps.I only have to swab a roached .54 GPR barrel every 5 or 6 shots. The pitting near the breach seems to foul quickly. After swabbing, I fire a couple of caps to make sure I didn't jam crud up the flash channel.
