I agree, faking a rusty Ruger up as a muzzle loader won't make it shoot.

But if I were to shoot a breech-muzzle loader I would do like Harry Pope told me to. Put a dummy case in the chamber, seat the bullet from the false muzzle until it contacts the wood plug in the dummy, and only then load the charged cartridge with wax wad.
No way would I put in a primed and charged case before plying the ramrod.
