A witness mark on your ramrod is a necessity. Ideally one should check their barrel with the ramrod before loading to ensure that it is unloaded. Pulling the trigger on a double load is not an option, PERIOD!!! A combined effort by Bill Travis and Jerry Lane has resulted in a tool that can save your day at the range and possibly your hunting season if you happen to double load your muzzleloader. The Double Load Extractor is 24" long assembled and comes with everything required to pull either a jacketed bullet or solid copper bullet .358 caliber and up. The body of the puller is .690" which will fit nicely in most bolt action receivers. A youtube video will be made on this item at a later date to demonstrate how easy it is to use. Cost is $100.00 plus shipping. Shipping charges will vary due to destination as the item is too long to ship flat rate. I'm working on finding shipping tubes to simplify shipping for safe delivery. Available from Pittman Bullets. Good job Jerry and Bill!!!
They Work! every neighborhood of SML shooters needs one of these, I can pull a bullet from start to finish in 5 minutes, that includes taking the barreled action out of the stock and putting it back. I used it at the last shoot, the man would have been done for the weekend without it.
ever try to beat a double load out of a barrel? darn near impossible if it's a tight bullet to begin with.
Yes that's true I heard a guy say a couple of years ago " I will just have to shoot it out", my reply was? you are an idiot! He didnt shoot it out either. someone who shoots a double load is playing with their life, yours too if you are spectating. It don't matter if it's smokeless or a sub, lot's of smokers have been blown, lot's.
This idea was born out of necessity, Why? a double load of course. It didn't take long to come up with the idea and not too much longer to get the first prototype up and running, thought about a patent but it's not like it will be in everyone's tool box. Jerry made a tweak or two and put them into production, with some minor modifications it would work in an inline or a break action as well. Hillbilly/Cuban tech at it's finest!
