(1)One type of speed loader (I use Triple 7 pellets. They seem to have less fouling than the Pyridex ones.) The 209 primers are held across the top of the loader. (2) Is a pin-like projection to clear the breech nipple of possible obstructions. A thin piece of fine wire will work just as well. The two parts screw together to keep you from sticking yourself. (3) It's called a "worm" to remove a patch that is stuck in the barrel. There is also one that has a penetrating screw to remove a stuck projectile. (4) T-bar that screws onto the end of your ramrod. Makes it easier to set your projectile. (5) Two types of 209 primer tools to place it on the nipple. (6) Projectile starter. Use this first to start it then finnish with the ramrod. (7) I always carry a couple of pre- moistened patches and a balloon to cover the muzzle if it's raining.
You may not need all of the above. Some are of convenience while others will keep you from going home early. I've done well with these. Lastly, you will need something to put your toys in. If I'm hunting in a stand I will take what I will need to quickly reload and put where I can grab them fast. I also take the ramrod off of the muzzleloader to reduce movement during reloading.
