Ok I think I have been going backwards putting Fresh Load in my Inlines.

I have been taking Breech Plug out and pushing my Load out that way, then cleaning threads up and reloading. Shouldn't I be pushing the Load out all the way up the Barrel. Putting Breech Plug back in and reloading?

That's the way I do it on an inline. It keeps the threads clean.

Ok during a Foggy Moring one time my rifle didn't fire. it had been loaded the day before and set in my Pickup over night. Had an Inline Shotgun not fire after several days loaded.

This is the only two times but it does happen.

I agree that would get rid of many issues.

For inlines, I always unload it breech to muzzle. For traditional, I shoot it out. I never leave it loaded.

The only exception would be if I was using an inline with BH 209. That powder doesn't absorb moisture and i'd leave it loaded.

I shoot a sidelock with BH209. It's still loaded from mid October. I usually shoot it sometime in April if I haven't shot it during the season. It always goes BOOM.

I read this over and over on forums. You might get away with not unloading all your life. What about the one time you don't, because moisture got to the powder?

I prefer to be more cautious. I've never been hit by a truck, but that doesn't mean it can't still happen.

Ok our Turkey Seasons last one month apiece. Firearms Deer Season last a month.

I know a Guy that his Rifle was loaded a year. He didn't know it. Ok I know stupid but he fired it shooting his wife. Seems he loaned it out and the Guy brought it back loaded.

I do leave mine loaded for several days unless I don't trust the load.

I might leave an in-line loaded for a day or two while I'm in deer camp but that extent of it.  I might only get one opportunity and I want to make sure the rifle is going to go boom.  Besides, I like to give the rifle a going over with some patch lube.  There's usually some precipitation when hunting in MN, whether it be rain, snow, frost or all of the above during the deer season.  Even stainless steel will start a little rust if you don't take some precautions.
