    Wax, grease, or oil?

    After everything is spic 'n span, I like CLP.

    Large amounts of fouling after each shot

    I use FFFG for less fouling. I swab between shots and use beeswax and olive oil for lube. No problem. 👍

    Non-Custom Hammer Pole 'Hawk?

    You might want to strip it, brown it or blue it, even rehandle it. But in the mean time you have a functioning 'hawk.

    Non-Custom Hammer Pole 'Hawk?

    The CRKT Woods Chogan Tomahawk would be a good choice.

    Your ramrod setup?

    When I hunt, I use the gun's ramrod. Hickory, with one end with a fitting. I like them long, for easy grip. At the range, I use a delrin rod. It makes the wood rod last longer.

    If they would just de-list fugitives like they did wolves, and issue some tags.

    Shooting sub-caliber round balls

    Properly done, a smaller ball and thick patches can be very accurate, and pack a punch due to a lighter ball going a wee bit faster. And yes, it is safe to do so.

    Keeping firearms dry during storage

    My guns are banished to the basement too. I bought a dehumidifier and keep the humidity of the basement at 50%. The guns stay safe.

    1st shot way off target

    I've had good luck wiping the bore down with denatured alcohol, and then a dry patch. Keeps the "first cold bore shot" In the group.

    Anyone finish barrel steel with linseed oil ?

    Cold blue or brown, and seal with BLO or Watco.
