    TC makes a cleaner for the breech plug threads. My breech plug did the same thing. I cleaned the threads and used the "blue grease" liberally and it solved my problem. I think the tool costs about 5 bucks. Simply screw it in just like the breech plug, remove it, wipe it down and repeat until it comes out clean.

    Never seeze its a gray goopy stuff and one can will last you three lifetimes unless you run industrial black iron pipe business. I put it on everything on the farm that I might have to take apart again that gets a lot of exposure to weather or nastiness. BTW dont get it on anything you like. Ie your favorite pair of jeans or a nice shirt or your hands. It does not come off easily.
    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    thanks guys, I got the Anti Sieze from Advanced today and also turned the plug until it was hand tight and backed it off a bit. Hopefully that will get it. I spent about an hour and a half cleaning it last night. I always clean it after shooting but I would like to be able to remove it at Elk camp if necessary...

    thanks again
