I agree with most of what I see in this video.  One important safety exception is the use of a handle on the end of the wooden ram rod to seat the ball.  When using a wooden rod, it is possible to break it when seating a ball if you are holding too far up on the rod.  You should grasp the rod about 6 to 8 inches from the muzzle and walk the rod hand over hand down into the muzzle.  By doing it this way, you minimize the flexing of the rod.  It is the flexing of the rod that leads to broken rods.  A broken rod will often be driven through the hand or wrist of the shooter.  The handle that he has made is a cleaver idea and will work fine for a metal or synthetic rod but is not a good idea for a wooden rod. 

Safety is always a priority when shooting.

I will admit. I did put a ball in my rifle with no powder. I was using my ball puller to pull the ball out. I only succeeded in making a hole in the ball. Finally did exactly what you did and she came right out. So I totally agree with not using a ball puller. Good information.
