A friend of mine got an inexpensive flinter for her daughter, and the daughter short charged it, and stuck the ball half way up the barrel. They used a cheap ball puller, and poked a hole thru the middle of the ball, stripped it out and did not move the ball. How would you get that ball out without pulling the breechplug? Will a grease zerk fit the touch hole liner threads? I suggested plugging the hole in the ball with a larger brass screw and then pumping it out with grease....... Need some ideas here..
