BP fouling

Posted by Rick Baker on Monday, 17 June 2013, at 11:50 a.m.

This past weekend I shot 20 rounds of BP 45/70 through my M1873. The loads were made using Swiss FFg. Towards the end of target practice I noticed that the brass was not ejecting cleanly as they did at the begining. The last 5 or 6 rounds I had to manually extract. I've been told that there should be no fouling affecting the extractor. Anyone know what is going on? Thanks, RB
