I've made a big goof.

I began cleaning one of the Muzzleloaders but not before I realized that I had a bullet still in the barrel. Now the powder is obviously wet, and I don't know how to get the bullet out. I don't have a bullet puller.

What kind of M/L do you have? If it's an inline, you can remove the breech plug and shove the load out with the ramrod.

My dad screwed up years back loaded w/o powder. Percussion cap style. We tried powder down nipple no luck then I had the idea of slicing into a chotgun shell and using that powder. It worked I dont why if the powder was finer or more potent but it did the trick.
