    Need some help , my Encore blackpowder breech plug will not come out, the wrench that comes with it, just cracked in half, is the plug right or left threads before I put the torque to it in a vise with socket, this is only a year old don't know why its jammed in? Any suggestions. I'm new to blackpowder but have been handloading for near 30 years. Thanks

    they do stick

    counter clockwise will un-screw it. I don't remember what socket size it is. Polish the threads a bit with a soft wire wheel before you torque it back and of course use an anti seize compound.
