T/C Large Rifle Primer Breech Plug Conversion
Works with all powder, including Blackhorn 209! SAY GOODBYE TO FLYERS AND NASTY BLOWBACK! IMPROVE YOUR ACCURACY!
With the 209 there is much too
much flame and fouling:
The 209 primer was designed for shotshells. The hole through the shotshell hull is almost .250" in size. The hole through the muzzleloader breech plug is .030". Where do you think that extra fouling will end up?
Too much energy:
Replacing the 209 with a large rifle primer all but eliminates those unexplained flyers from our Encore groups. Personally, I believe these flyers were the result of the 209 actually lifting the sabot off the powder charge simultaneous with igniting the powder. The much milder Large Rifle primer ignites the powder just as instantly but lacks the energy to move the sabot and bullet off the powder charge therefore eliminating the flyers.
