Gotsta have some lube for patches. Would you wanna go down a dry waterslide?
Traditions had a basic operations guide in their owner's manual at one time...
edit* This is the Traditions manual for sidelocks (cap & flint); it is pretty basic but lists loading instructions on the 18th or 19th page of the manual. http://www.traditionsfirearms.com/cmsAdmin/uploads/PercussionFlintlock_manual.pdf
Some may debate their load suggestions, but they are a good starting point, IMO.
I prefer to buy the ziploc bag of pre-lubed yellow patches, but my shooting volume is low.
