Hey all,

Thanks for the suggestions. I went and bought a 7/16" dowel rod, but it was too snug to fit down the barrel and would form a seal, but I couldn't find my drill (for the center) or sandpaper to reduce the diameter of the rod so I threw in the towel and dropped it off at the gunsmith. He's said probably going to drill the bullet so the powder is out and proceed.

Drill the bullet????

If he honestly suggested that, I'd rethink my options and find a different gunsmith.

As mentioned, the solution here is so simple and easy, a 5 minute job at most, with absolutely no risk of harm to yourself or the barrel.

No, he's probably going to take a rod, tap it one time lightly and then call you to come and pick it up. It will take him longer to write up your receipt than it took to cure the problem.

At least you'll be back in business.

If 7/16" is to snug get a 3/8" and start tapping. I'll bet it falls out after a couple light taps.

Eh gad, not sure when I've ever read so many backyard Gunsmith cures.

I gotta admit, the bullet screw job is SOP for BlackPowder...

And, WD40 or Aero Kroil worksgreat to kill a primer....
