GREASE OVER CYLINDER
Is there any way to load a revolver safely without filling the cylinder holes with grease? When I was young I bought a black powder revolver and the sales man told me to use grease over the balls. I did for a while but I noticed when I pressed the balls in they always cut a small ring of lead off them. My little pea brain told me that nothing could get past that ball so I loaded her up without the grease. One went down the barrel and one went down each side. Bent hell out of the wedge. That was my one and only black powder gun and I got rid of it real quick. I would like to have a revolver but don't want to put up with the mess. Any ideas? I'm sure the civil war soldiers didn't take time to grease them.
