The flash hole is clear. Water runs freely and it can be fired by putting powder below the nipple. I will try firing uncompressed powder after I clean one more time. I am beginning to think this may be oil related. This morning while cleaning the firearm I scraped out quite a bit of burned powder residue. I didn't think to measure it. But I bet it was 10-15 grains of powder residue that wouldn't burn when exposed to a flame. even though it is clean I think I will clean again with boiling soap and water and maybe some denatured alcohol. I may be able to accomplish that and try again this evening. I will report back.

Thanks for alll of your help.
