So I got one in the barrel and the powder won't fire. Tried to add a little xtra powder but no go. Bullet puller has not worked. Going to try and use the compressor to get it out. Never done it before and wanted to know the drill. I already soaked to barrel to inert the powder. Can I do this by myself or do I need someone else and any special attachments on the compressor?
The bullet puller affixed to the proper range rod should do the trick with a maxie ball. I've found that compressed air with a less than air tight projectile like the maxie is sometimes a little more difficult to remove. Seems the air will escape around the maxie preventing its expulsion. I had this happen with minie ball in a civil war style musket. The compressor might be worth a try, though.
