Since 1984 Smokeless Muzzleloading Has been making replacement muzzleloading barrels for New England Firearms and H&R single shot actions. The barrels are made from Douglas button riffled barrel blanks. The barrels have a one turn in 36 inch rate of twist. The Smokeless Muzzleloading Inc. System uses a breach plug that uses A 209 Size shotgun primer to seal the barrel so there is no blow by when it is fired.
The Smokeless Muzzleloading System is designed to use smokeless powder and bullets with sabots. The system may also use black powder if so desired. The use of SMOKELESS POWDER and 209 size shotgun primers means there is no CORROSION to worry about.
The breech plug can be removed with a 5/8 inch socket wrench to allow you to bush out the barrel easily. When using smokeless powder loads it is necessary to brush out the barrel with a twenty gauge shotgun brass or stainless steel brush to remove the plastic build up every twenty five shots or whenever accuracy starts to go away otherwise you clean the barrel just like any modern high power riffle.
When using black powder or its equivalent you must clean with a brass or stainless steel twenty gauge shotgun brush followed with a soap and water clean up.
After cleaning, fire two or three primers to make sure there is no oil in the barrel. Leave a spent primer in the breech plug to load the Smokeless Muzzleloading System. A load is selected from the loading chart from Smokeles Muzzleloading Inc. loading chart. A weighed amount of smokeless powder is poured down the barrel then a bullet is inserted into the sabot and the pair is inserted into the barrel and rammed down till it is seated on top of the powder.DO NOT BOUNCE the ramrod on the bullet.
Remove the ramrod and open the Action and remove the spent primer and place a new primer in the breech plug and close the Action and you are ready to shoot.
ALL LOADS MUST BE BY MEASURED WEIGHT ONLY !!!
