Removing a loaded round after BP hunting
My Son was out hunting this past weekend with his TC 54cal BP inline. He removed the cap after hunting and left the charge in the bore. His kit he got from his future Grandpa-in-law contained a bullet puller that screws into the ramrod. I screwed it on and removed the lead bullet. Unfortunately he is hunting with TC powerbelt bullets. It's a solid lead hollow point with a plastic base attached at the back of the bullet. The plastic base stayed in the rifle after I removed the lead bullet. My only choice now is to take the rifle to the range and fire it, blasting out the plastic base and powder charge. It seams like there should be a better way to get ahold of the plastic base and pull it out. The bullet remover will not get a good hold on the base. I have told him to just fire it at the end of shooting time for now on and we will just clean it.
