I sure don't have any of these problems with a flint gun.
Just pour in the powder start a patched round ball seat it and prime the pan. I know old fashion but it works and the guns are accurate out to 80 yds. I still feed my TC firehawk 100 grs of 2f powder and a TC maxi hunter hollow point. With the 3x9 scope this will group 1.5" at 100 yds off sand bags. I would like to replace the firehawk with a newer TC model. Maybe for next year.
