Well, if we're gonna get picky about terminology, a matchlocks burning wick ignites the priming pan, not the main charge through the hole in the barrel above the pan. I've shot match locks and flint locks for over 40 years and have always considered the hole in the barrel next to the pan a touch hole. And, I've never worried about pressure loss, just hitting the target. JMHO
