Thomas, I don't know if this held true for the Springfield, but I read that when the Baker rifle, a British muzzle loader in the 1820's would get so fouled that the rifleman could hardly load it any more they would uninate down the barrel. I think I'll stick with Charle's suggestion and use a wet patch. RB
