Cleaning A muzzleloader
When my shooting season is over.
Remove the breech plug
wipe out breech area
Boil 1 1/2 to 2 cups water and pour down the breech end of barrel. This is a step I do to reduces the number of cleaning patches I use. It is in no way nescesary.
Use the pre saturated cleaning patches
push patches down barrel from breech end. Repeat this until patches come out clean.
With a clean dry patch apply bore butter and run down the barrel. This is your barrel preservative, more is better than not enough. Take another clean patch and with a small amount of bore butter rub the outside of the barrel also.
Use the pre saturated cleaning patches and clean the breech plug.
Use anti seize lubricant on the threads of the breach plug. This is important. It will make taking the breach plug out next time easier
After I complete these steps I put my muzzleloader into storage and break out my fishing rods.
