Muzzleloaders and Black Powder - An American Tradition

Blackpowder Rifle - pedersoli_kentucky_standard

General cleaning instructions:

Cleaning your muzzleloader is really a simple procedure that can be summarized as follows:

1.      Clean the bore of black powder residue.

2.      Protect the bore after cleaning.

3.      Lubricate the trigger mechanism and other moving parts.

4.      Clean and protect the exterior.

The details of the procedure and the specific cleaners used are detailed in the links below.  The procedures are written to be applicable to any muzzleloader but the application may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer.   Use these directions as an aid but not in lieu of the instructions provided with your muzzleloader.   Cleaning the bore between firings (step 1 above) will improve accuracy, prevent fouling and reduce cleaning at the end.

Before you shoot:

1.      Operation:  Be sure you understand how the mechanisms work.  Verify that you can operate the safety, understand how the gun is cocked and how to safely un-cock the firing mechanism.

2.      Tools:  Understand and become familiar with how to disassemble and re-assemble your muzzleloader using the manufacturers supplied tools and accessories.

3.      Safety Tip:  Insert the ram rod into the bore of the empty barrel and scribe a mark on the ram rod at the open end of the barrel.  Use this as an empty barrel gauge to verify the barrel is free of obstructions and is not already loaded.  It is important to have this means of verifying your muzzleloader is empty to prevent installing a load in an already loaded barrel resulting in a very dangerous condition.
