    Re: Musketballing

    I tried the musketball method of loading a pipe, took a flake of FVF that's been aging for who knows how long. wadded it up, like I would a chewing gum wrapper and loaded my bend dublin.
    Damm nice even burn, and just a few tamps to get the flake down the botten of the bowl with nothing but ashes and a bit of dottle heheh
    the heel of the bowl was gurgling soo I had a run a pipe cleaner through a couple of times. my fault I rehydrated a flake over night and should have left it to sit for a bit hehe

    Good results from me here as well. Ive musketballed about 3 different tobaccos and had some of the best burns ever- something I could never get with the "frank" method.

    Glad it worked for you! I just musketballed some Royal Yacht -- think I'm finally getting the hang of musketballing ribbon! Definitely can't be too dry or it doesn't work worth a damn, though.

    Can't be too dry or it falls apart and doesn't pack tight enough. (Weird thing to say in general, where too tight a pack is usually a mistake.)

    I'll have to try it with ribbon some time; it's been a strictly flake thing with me.

    Fantastic post. I tried this method with some Blackeney's Best Latikia Flake and it worked really well.

    Was in a hurry this morning but decided I wanted to have a little LNF (after a week or so of 4Noggins blends) so I wadded up a flake and crammed it just below the rim of my finicky Viking. Voila! Excellent flavor, zero gurgle and by the end I had tamped the ball down to the bottom of the bowl. Best burn I've had in this pipe.
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    You can't mball crimp cuts or cube cuts, either. PA and CH are unMBable, for all intents and purposes. (But then, who cares, they burn great almost no matter what you do.)

    I have been musketballing for years, just didn't know it had a name.

    I just came up with a variation which I call the musketball-curse-rip-and-cram, useful when realizing that the wadded up flake of Hamborger Veermaster is NOT going to fit in that Stanwell bent dublin...
