Oh yes, I agree, you still have to clean and oil the whole thing. However, any blow back is so minimal that it takes very little time and effort to clean it all up.
Although I clean my chamber, breech block, and all that, I think I can say that there is little to no fouling, or blow-back into my chamber. It is certainly very minimal. I've seen no indications of soot on my breech block for sure. (but yes I still clean it) (for some odd reason I've always enjoyed cleaning my rifles)
Perhaps because of the habit of always detail cleaning my rifles after shooting, I've just never noticed. But I have noticed that cleaning black powder in a cartridge rifle is way way easier than with a muzzle loader.
Generally speaking, and in my experience, the lighter the load, the more blow back you will get. In my rifle I am shooting 70 grains of Swiss powder, so I'm sure the case is sealing the chamber pretty well. !!!
