Greasing Tow Wads?


Those who use tow as wadding in their smoothbores, do you grease or oil the tow or just use it plain? I am thinking some lube would help reduce fouling and could also possibly reduce the risk of smoldering tow on the ground.


rich pierce:
I tried tow and got poor patterns. I lubed it after I learned that plain tow smolders after firing. I learned by seeing smoke bombs downrange.

I always give a quick rub of totw mink oil. Do not have burning issues.
