This avoids a chainfire. A chainfire is when you fire the the chamber behind the barrel and the flame jumps to the next chamber and fires it, and the next, and the next, etc.

dont use crisco in a firearm. its all just vegetable oil which will gunm up your firearm with nearly unremovable residue. crisco used to be beef lard now its a corn based solid.

look for a block of real lard if your going that route just dont use crisco

I just put lube over the top of the ball to seal the front, never had an issue. It is messy though, if you wear glasses and shoot into the wind...

Although its not necessary to use a patch before the ball. It will help soften the fouling, and keep your barrel cleaner.
I mostly use lube pills.

No, but a Wonder Wad is advised if not a ring of Butter Flavored Crisco around the inside where the bullet meets the cylinder.

Why do I use Butter Flavored? You can use it as the excuse when you lick things at the range, and when you shoot the place smells like popcorn! Well, OK, maybe not Butter Flavored if any Crisco at all...
