209 conversion to rifle primers -

Has anyone tried a conversion plug to use 25 cal brass with a rifle primer or 22 hornet or the little metal primer cups that holds a large or small primer. I was thinking about trying one for accuracy, less fouling. Why aren't they more popular?

more crap to buy and plus the fact that its hard to find large rifle primers these days is just another reason i wont ever consider using them.

My old Encore shoots in the 1" range at 200 yards if I do my part. Maybe I'll not fix what is not broken. Looking at what other people get for groups with their Encores I think I have a good one.

My T/C 209x50 Pro Hunter, using CCI209M primers, 75grs weight of BH, with a Barnes 50gr TMZ, will stack bullets on top of each other at 100yds, with less than 1.75" groups at 200yds .......... IF........ I do my part.

Sorry to say I'm putting that rifle up for sale. Made a deal with the wife, which turned out very well for me

I have one when I was using 777, trying to cut down on the crud ring in my Omega. Switched to BH 209 and no crud ring, a lot cleaner powder.
