Gents and Madams,

Seems the more Black Powder that is consumed the more is learned!

Have found a SMART thing to do!

The ole drop tube after once being manufactured and put into use is easy to relegate to storage between loading sessions and forgotten about.

While preparing to load some .40-65 ammo yesterday the condition of the drop tube bore came to mind. Sure enough there was enough Black Powder residue accumulation to cause concern. Good place for humidity to create an eventual log jam. The copper tubing surely doesn't like the combination?

Small caliber cleaning rod with a dozen fresh patches eliminated most of the buildup. Some lighter fluid on a few more patches removed the remainder.

Perhaps your drop tube may be in need of some vigorous cleaning activity?
