I only have been involved with traditional black powder. I have no experience or knowledge about modern black powder firearms, so I venture in with some trepidation.

Here is my first attempt with a modern muzzleloader:

There must be something wrong with the gun since it is not working like it should. All advice is welcome.

Actually, if the cylinder was lined up correctly and you did the muzzleloading steps properly, it should work as long as a primed empty case were in the cylinder.

Load the cartridge with a wad and light powder load. Just the primer won't have any power.

We spoiled your joke huh?
