I have a question.

When you ram the ball or bullet home on a traditional muzzle-loader, I assume that the air in the barrel escapes through the flash hole as the ball is seated.

I don't see anywhere in the Electra system for the air to go -- so I assume that as you ram the ball/bullet you are also compressing the air in the barrel.

Does this air-compression cause the Electra to require more effort to load?

If so, how much more effort? If not, why not?
