Civil War/shotgun style loading

In a scenario including "civil war" or "shotgun" style loading, what would be the best way to load the paint?
I assume in "civil war", only one ball can be loaded at a time, where as "shotgun" 2 could be loaded. Would you just drop the paint into the hopper, or remove the hopper altogether and just drop the paint into the neck? In the case of "civil war", is it even possible to load paint directly into the barrel?

I wouldn't try loading via the barrel. Some pump guns you can remove the feed and load one at a time, other wise just take you hopper off and load thru the neck

but that's the point! you're supposed to muzzle load and use a swab to push it to the bolt

Huck has a point. it's infinitely more cool if you load down the barrel. Make sure you've got a mechanical safety though or it could lead to more pain than you'd prefer.

We always dropped the paint in the feedneck, but using a swab or squeegee to load it would be 10x better and 10x more dangerous.

Making it 20x the fun! or would that be 100x the fun? Either way, MORE FUN!

Muzzle loading might be cool, except for the fact that we have 11 year olds playing. Paint breakage and the chance of "pain" due to improper loading. I think for now, it would have to be feed neck loading.

If you muzzle load, just remove the detents so you don't damage them.
