The devastation is unbelievable and the interactive photos really make it much more sobering. I have a sister in law living in Japan now but she lives nowhere near the these areas and came through just fine.
Thank God the only natural disaster to worry about where I live is the posibility of wildfires.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
