Just got thru making an English Sporting 12 Ga Shotgun. I am new to muzzleloading SHOTGUNS and having a hard time loading the gray dense over powder wad. I purchased a gray dense cardboard wad (probably a Nitro Wad). The first shot is ok, but the second one is hard to push down and nearly impossible to get it tight at the breech. No problem with the shot wad and the olive oil wad (Skychief method). All of my MLing experience over the years has been fun, but this is not. I've got a lot of Nitro wads. Is there anything to make them easier to load like lubricating the wad or any other method? I read some of the other blogs where some are several over shot wads over powder. How about other solutions?
