I have been a lurker for a bit and now joined.
I have been reading here and other websites about what is available in products and also what kinds of tricks are effective for muzzleloading in inclement weather.
I have a .54 cal traditional percussion rifle. I live in Western Washington and the area I have been scouting for elk is in a rainforest. The ML season seems to be during a rainy part of the year (rainy relative to scouting time!).
Some of the ideas I have come across are:
the muzzle sleeves--like condoms
saran wrap on the barrel
plastic nipple covers
Wax around the nipple
moisture remover packets in speed loaders
I was wondering if anybody had useful tips or could direct me to more links so I can 'keep my powder dry' and such. Do you load under an umbrella?
