No, I haven't done this .... yet. However, I've been running it around in my mind. If you get a stuck ball in a flintlock, there is no nipple that you can remove to stuff more powder in. If the pan powder doesn't ignite the main charge (or if there is no main charge) and the ball puller doesn't work, what then????????   confused   confused

You can trickle powder in the touch hole. It doesn't take that much to pop out a ball.

Balls are soft so they are easily removed with a ball puller as well.
