New to Muzzleloading have a few questions


Since your breech threads will have (or should have) some lube in them, yes you will have some powder stick in the threads. A cleaning patch or two, re-lube the breech plug, and reassemble. I spread out a sheet of newspaper or open a brown paper bag on my work bench to catch the powder. Hope this helps, good luck getting a shot off.

I am thinking about using a Williams peep sight instead of the fiber optics this year. I don't have any experience with a peep sight but have heard some good reviews. Anyone here have experience or input?
This is what I am considering:
