To much lube on the patch? (.50 cal Hawkins Tradition)

Ok go ahead and try just the BB lubed patches if the gun still loads hard do an online search and get some .020 or .018 pre lubed patches. My 50 flinter .015 patches are to tight with a 490 ball, .018 I can get abot 3 or 4 between cleaning and the .020 I can get 6 or 7 shots off between shoots. I lube with rendered bear fat but know many buckskinners who use the bore butter and have no complaints
