Here's the owner's manual for the 10ML:
There's another manual for the 10ML ll on the Savage website:
It states in Section 2, #6:
"ALWAYS seat the projectile firmly on the powder charge.
Any projectile that sits off the powder charge will usually produce poor accuracy, and could result in pressures high enough to burst the barrel and cause injury."
Under "Loading #5" it states:
"Once the bullet is past the muzzle, use the ramrod to firmly seat it over the powder charge.
DO NOT CRUSH THE POWDER. Simply push the projectile down the bore until it makes contact with the powder, then seat firmly.
For best accuracy always exert the same amount of pressure on the ramrod for every shot."
You came to the right place, it's a muzzle loader.
Good luck with it, enjoy and be safe.
