TC triumph new need some guidance.

Hey guys. Never shot a smoke pole before but I have a tag for New Mexico elk and it's in muzzy season so I went and bought a triumph. New and I'm not sure what I need to do.

Is there a barrel break in? I've heard about seasoning your barrel but also heard the new barrels are pretty solid and not like old iron ones.

What have others used in this gun that work?

Anything AT all will help.
Thanks and I appreciate it!!!!

Mario

Not sure rather you can use sabots in NM but, this will give you EVERYTHING you want.

CCI209M......... or.......... Federal209A .... primers
Blackhorn 209 propellant........ 110grs VOLUME Blackhorn 209
Barnes 290gr T-EZ bullets

There's no need what so ever to "season" the barrel of your new rifle. It will handle Blackhorn 209 (BH209) without any modifications.

IF............ sabots are not allowed, use Thor bullets. Just my 2 from a long time T/C owner.

With BH209, you don't need to clean between shots. That's the nice thing about it in production rifles. In many cases, the rifle may not shoot to the same point of impact clean as when fouled. My Pro Hunter is one of those that NO MATTER what you do, the first two shots will not hit the zero POI. Just the nature of some of them. (photo attached)

What you WILL NEED, is a 1/8" drill bit. The drill bit is used to clean the carbon from the primers in the flash channel of the breech plug. IT IS ONLY TURNED BY HAND. After a session of shooting and when cleaning the rifle, turn the drill bit BY HAND into the flash channel (under the primer). Turn it until you're sure you've bottomed out. You won't hurt the breech plug.

Here's how my Pro Hunter reacts when shooting a clean rifle the first two shots. The rest fall right into place.



Good luck with your new rifle! Please post some of your targets.

Blackhorn 209 (BH209) is loose propellant. It has a MAXIMUM of 120 volume, NOT..150grs charges. You'll need a volume measure, which IMO the most accurate is the T/C plastic, adjustable see thru mode.

Most find that between 100 and 110grs volume shoots the best, with most who I know using 110grs volume. Although a standard WIN 209 primer will work good, most prefer to shoot the CCI209M or Federal 209A primers. The magnum primers work better in bitter cold. You'll need a 1/8" drill bit. You use the drill bit to clean out the flash channel......... BY HAND........ turning the drill into the flash channel and chip out the carbon. Keeps the flash channel clean.
