How do you like to have your ramrods? I have been partial to a maple dowel with brass thimbles pinned to each end, the overall length being just a bit longer than muzzle length for easier removal. Lately, I have been making them just flush with the muzzle and permanently fixing a jag to the top end. That way I have both a jag and thread available. Seen some done with just a plain wood end on one end.
