Title: blow tube
Post by: Rob DiStefano on November 16, 2016, 11:00:00 PM
some folks just use a 12" or so piece of neo tubing for their blow tube, and just jam it into the chamber up to the rifling.  i prefer to use a cartridge case along with the tubing, to kept as much moisture out of the chamber as possible.  fire formed brass could be best, but sized and expanded brass will get the job done.  some folks add a thin neoprene washer around the case, i never saw a need for that.  cost is the price of a brass case and about 50 cents for a foot of 7/16" OD neo tubing.  the tubing fits in from the head end - just scrunch it in a bit, it'll fit like a glove and be very secure in the brass.   pull off the brass when it gets cruddy from the black powder and clean it with yer cartridge brass.
