Everytime it seems I am getting some consistency it all disappears.
How long are you waiting between shots?
Are you swabbing between shots with Triple7 and what are you using to swab with?

Its not uncommon for a ML to shoot a few shots well and then it all goes to hell because the barrel got warm. If the barrel is warm to the touch its too warm for sabots. Let it cool for several minute before loading again.

Triple7 pretty much requires swabbing between shots if you hope to load another sabot to the same spot as you loaded the first. It creates a crud ring where the sabot and powder meet. Plain old Windex works fine for a swabbing solution followed by a dry patch.
