I didn't used to have a problem with the breech plug threads getting powder residue in them but now it seems I do. I haven't tried the Teflon tape yet but I will if I have too. does anyone have any insight on how to restore the seal on my breech plug, because the barrels breech plug threads are a bear to clean. I have three breech plugs and they are all getting dirty now and they have been quite firmly to size them. I see a lip up inside the barrel at the front of the threads, how does the plug seal on that lip? does it butt up against the lip or does the BP cup slide past the lip?

I recleaned the barrel with hopes in case something was left in there from when I tried the blackhorn. I then wrapped the plug with the Teflon tape and screwed it in there, it surprised me that the plug still was fairly easy to screw in, I had the barrel off the gun and used the plug wrench to screw it in. now to resight the gun as I also put a DNZ mount and Nikon inline scope on there to improve the eye relief situation.

Hello redear,  Maybe you have these but, here's a couple tools I use for cleaning breach barrel and plug threads.  I also wrap a couple patches around the brush,  wet it with bore cleaner and thread the brush in and out several times.  I also have a couple of small brushes, one "brass" and one "stainless steel".  Also shine a bright light in the breach and see if there is some stubborn carbon that may need a little more attention.  You might have to lightly scratch it off.  When everything is clean put a little "anti seize lube" on the breach plug threads and you are good to go.

thanks smoking joe, I did get the brush, and need to get the other wire cleaning donut there. I have been using 50 cal bronze brush with patches wrapped around it with bore cleaners, hoppes, butches, pre treated patches , ballistol etc. I found a 22 cal bronze brush held by the fingers and sawed back and forth through the threads of the plug in it's dirty spots will remove anything that is there regardless of how stubborn it is. want to shoot today but the wind is howling, I guess that storm Nate has pushed it's way on up to Virginia, we need rain anyway bad.

If its a QRBP, it should not be getting any fouling into the threads. Could have gas cutting on the inside of the barrel. It just takes a tiny leak for it to start cutting in deeply.

Just email cva, they'll probably send you a new breech plug to fit. If that doesnt fix it, they'll replace the barrel or entire rifle. Win win either way lol.

My dirty wolf plug situation seems to be fixed. I used a little Teflon tape and cleaned the barrel extra good, and today when I took the plug out there was no dirt on the plug. the front lip of the plug was clean, thanks everybody and thanks Carlos! I like the tape thing too as it is really not any harder to screw in than before.
