Question:

1) are you swabbing the bore between shots?

If you are and still having problems, the guys here in this thread had some good solutions.

Here's more suggestions.

T/C also makes their pre-soaked patches in "T-17" (the blue ones). They are formulated w/lube to make loading easier. Be sure to roll the wet-patch into a ball and squeeze out the extra solvent so it's not too wet going down the barrel. This can (obviously) foul your breech plug. Another method I've used is to spray a patch lightly with Ballistol and run it down before seating the sabot.

T/C's like a tight sabot! If you go with something smaller, you will lose accuracy. It's a trade off.
