    I use one to unload before heading home from hunting. And a couple of times because I rammed a ball down without putting a powder charge in first. I haven't done that in a while, so now I better watch it a senior moment is probably on the way!

    They use them all the time at the NMLRA shoots. I personally don't use one. If I dry ball I just pull the ball on a flintlock. If it's percussion I remove the nipple and fill the drum with 4F and then pop a cap. The drum holds enough to push the ball out.

    I carry one in the field, in case things get wet while wandering around the edges of the duck ponds. :D

  5. the really good thing about them is if you need to unload gun,you do not have to reclean other than a dry patch to make sure its clear. old semperfi
