Exclamation stuck sabot


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have a stuck sabot in the barrel of my muzzleloader. I was able to get the bullet, but am having trouble with the sabot. Any suggestions?

If this were an inline, simply pull the breech plug and push it through. If it is a traditional rifle, perhaps a bullet puller could be pushed down and drilled through the sabot and then pull it back up. If there is no powder under the sabot, put a very small amount of powder through the bolster, push that thing all the way down, and blow it out on the range.

Just some thoughts.

If there's an air compressor handy, take out the nipple or flash hole bushing and blow it out.

Bye

Simple my man, you need a ramrod attatchment with a screw on the end. Like this https://secure.tcarms.com/store/imag...9014Medium.jpg . Put it on the end of you ramrod and ram it into the sabot and pull it out. Simple as that.

I recently had a lead ball stuck in my barrel. somehow, forgot to load powder. took me a good 20 mins. using the projectile puller to get the thing out. found out about a co2 load discharger and placed an order on one. It uses the small co2 cartridges to discharge the unfired projectile. when I get it I'll give you the specifics on it.
