I am shooting the Jim Shockey Gold FFG powder made by Pioneer. I see on the advertisements the guy shooting has shot 1000 shots without cleaning. I have a hard timew getting the third shot to load. What am I doing wrong. I'm shooting the Hornady sabot with the 240 grain polymer tipped bullet.

Dry Brush

I dry brush after 2 shots to make it easier. Lots of debris collects in the grooves, especially down in the chamber area. No need to wet patch or anything, just two strokes of a dry brush and shake it muzzle down to get the loosened dirt out.
I tried wetting the sabot with spit. That only helped get the bullet started. Blowing down the bore didn't soften the debris. Otherwise I like not having to clean immediately and the ease of cleaning up after shooting Shockey's Gold.
