The solution for all this for me was Blackhorn 209...No swabbing necessary

I put some bp solvent on a patch after about every 5th shot .if i'm shooting patched balls, i just put a patch in my mouth and then load it down the barrell. It keeps the fouling pretty soft.

I won't be shooting a dirty barrel in the field either. My first shot has always been from a clean barrel and the one I most worried about when I shot blackpowder. My encore shot basically the same with a clean and dirty barrel so I didn't really have to worry. If my barrel had to be fouled to shoot good, it would find a new home.

Actually I do Cec, unless it's a "quick as possible" follow up shot and I don't have time. That's what was recommended in my Knight user's manual years ago. Keep a few extra patches handy, chew one up and swab the barrel after one shot, to help the bullet seat properly by breaking the crud ring out. ;\)

so when you shoot a doe and a 150 class buck rolls out either you will swab or hope the poi is good as you always shoot with a swabbed barrel

i want my ml to shoot a good group from a clean bbl on fist shot and at least 2 more dirty shot so i have peace of mind

I don't swab in the field. I line it up with a clean barrel. I then check zero with a dirty barrel to make sure it's not different.
