What about White Hots? I get good velocity, accuracy and easy clean-up with it.

Re: Blackhorn 209 new black powder

the white hots are accuracy and consistent but still no comparison. I had to swab the entire time i shot up 2 boxes.

Re: Blackhorn 209 new black powder

I've used the White Hots & couldn't see any difference in accuracy from using T7. I have some of the Black Mag powder. Going to try some of it at the range this week using the Barnes 285 BTs & whatever else I have on hand. IIRC, the plant blew up & I don't know if it's even available anymore. SP

Re: Blackhorn 209 new black powder

I tried the small rifle primer conversion from prbullets.com with BH209, they fired, but I did experience several hang fires out of 25 rounds. As ar as BH209, with the 195 gr. dead center bullets, both my Knight Disc Elite & my Austin-Hallek luv the stuff. They shoot better groups with no smell, no swabbing, no fighting to load the 3rd, 4th or 50th round. Would never go back to T7. Definitly use the CCI magnum 209 primers with BH. My Knight disc gun has the primer conversion, so i don't have to use the red plastic caps. Ignition is very reliable, never had a hang fire.

I also use the Winchester W209s, extremely reliable and consistent. The main thing to look at is that you need to use a SHOTGUN 209, not a MUZZLELOADER 209.

Good luck.

Re: Blackhorn 209 new black powder

i just found out about this blackhorn powder today. i shoot a muzzleloader that has a howa action and uses large rifle magnum primers. i wonder how that would work with this powder? i have been using 195 grains of magnum triple 7. the gun is rated for 250 grains. it is called the ultimate muzzleloader. it is built here in mich. cost about $1500 new. i have been shooting it for about 6 years. every combanation i shoot works well but there is always that flyer every 5 or 10 shots. we shoot it out to 400 yrds. my friend has one also and shot a deer in iowa 2 years ago at 350 yards. i love the gun and looking forward to trying this powder. has anyone tryed the fed. exspander sabots. i would like a sabot to do something besides just punching a small hole strait thru the deer. thanks any comments will be helpful.

Re: Blackhorn 209 new black powder

Blackhorns charts only go up to 120 grain loads. Anything after that, you are a human guinea pig. I have a TC Omega that works best with two T7 pellets, T7 primer & 285 Barnes BT. I experimented with the BH powder & other than not having to do much cleaning at the range, I didn't see any advantage in using it for hunting especially at the price per shot. If you're bustin' deer at 350, I'd say if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
