Brand new T/C Omega. Decided to try BH209. Use T7 in my Traditions muzzleloader. So started out working up a load. Started at 85grains and worked up to 115. Fired 2 shots at 85 to get on paper. Then proceeded to fire 3 shot groups at each powder measure in 5grain increments. Before each 3 shot group I removed breech plug and pulled a boresnake with a couple squirts of Hoppes #9 on it, twice. Barrel was sparkling before I started each 3 shot group. At 100gr and 105 gr the first 2 shots touched and then 3rd shot was right next to it. This was all with clean barrel. End results were 100gr was 1 1/2" group and 105gr was 1 1/4" group. And distance I was shooting was 100yds off sand bags.
T7 would never give me that kind of consistency with a clean barrel. 2nd and 3rd shots would always be about 6 inches away from 1st shot. So gotta say I love this BH209. Too bad I can't shoot in my Traditions because of breech plug.
