There are suggested routine's to follow concerning inlines side locks & flint use. Which are indeed respected.

But~ as many long term fellow B/P shooters know we are always on the scout to circumvent some of those tried and true ways whenever possible due to discovery.

Store bought bee's wax /Crisco lubes seriously tend to foul their barrel after a couple three shots. Especially when a heavy charge of powder is typically fired thus making follow-up shootings require a wood mallet just to seat a ball or bullet. On the other hand.
A discovery I made a few years ago concerning a liquid patch lube trying. Shenandoah Valley Patch lube gave me the opportunity to fire 6-7 times before fouling my Hawken 54 cal. Can't say where to buy S/V/ any longer as my favorite outfitter no longer shelves it.
