I most respectfully disagree with the hand on the ramrod. Anyone who has already fired a rifled-musket, say twenty-times, is going to be forced to have his hand firmly on the ramrod to get that next minie to seat properly. Their weapons fouled horribly, much worse that ours today. I’ve put forty rounds through a Enfield and even with today’s cleaner black powder, it took a lot of force to get those last few minies all the way down the barrel.
