It might be a good idea once you have things disasembled take a high powered flashlight and shine down the barrel. Take a good look at it and make sure its nice and shiney all the way down. I'm not sure why you need to remove the breach plug each time you run a patch? It should stay on the end of the cleaning attachment holding the wet patch. On the range starting with a clean dry barrel I shoot 1 shot, run a bronze brush through twice and shoot 1 shot. repeat this process out to 5-6 shots then I will run a wet patch, TC product, then two dry patches and start all over till the gun is sighted in. Also, there are several new powders that I believe surpass pyrodex in performance.
