What did you use too drill  the ramrod hole ?.
I extended a Twist Drill with a piece of Tube.I then ground one cutting edge away so that the drill will want to return to the centre rather than following the grain.I read this somewhere and it works.Very much like a Gun drill with one cutting edge but utilising a Twist Drill.I placed a steel rule in the barrel Channel and sighted along it with an ordinary twist drill in the  electric Drill then used the extended drill and kept my fingers crossed.
