Not sure anyone has an issue with this. I love the contoured rubber ramrod cap but its useless for a quick reload. You either have to remove it or put a bullet starter on the other end of the ramrod. I turned down a replacement starter to the same diameter as the rod. Then I drilled and tapped the mounting hole as much deeper as the starter length. Then I cut that much off and installed the modified starter. This keeps the overall rod length same as original. If this is not done, the rubber cap could rotate into the bore line.
