my group (4 of us) all have sidekicks whats the best was to unload without shooting it off? simple enough un screw the plug but is that not a good idea dont we all use anti seize on the threads dont the pellets get some on them when they slide through?? and how to you push the sabot out?? doesnt it get messed up? is it reusable??
With your sidekicks, take the breech plug out and push the pellets out. They will not make as much of a messas you think. I pour out loose powder. Then I have a range rod. The range rod is 32" long. I set that rod end on the floor, slide that into the breech end of the rifle, then push the sabot and projectile back out the muzzle. After that take a patch or two and the barrel should be very clean with little effort.
Take a breech plug brush and wrap a patch over it. Reach in and wipe out the threads in the rifle for the breech plug. Then wipe the plug off, re-grease and assemble the rifle back together. You can also run a oil swab patch down the barrel. Remember to wipe that oil back out in the morning before you reload the rifle.
Also do not use the pellets or sabot over the next day. Use new pellets and sabots. And keep the old ones for the range.
