Hi, 4v50 Gary, and others,

(forgive me if this is a double post - something went wrong)

Take a look above for discussion on ball screw vs. worm.

You could well be correct on the ramrod, though. If a tulip head rod was pounded down hard enough it could leave a shape something like that. I agree the ball has not been fired.

Glad, as always, to have your ideas as you usually have good ones.

Jim K

Hey Jim, you're right. It's a stuck ball remover (screw) that made the hole and I got my terminology mixed up. Considering that I've taughted quite a few folks blackpowder rifle shooting (with proper terminology) shame on me!
