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:
Your rifle gets so dirty from
the 209 primer that in some cases after several shots the firing pin
will not even travel far enough to ignite the primer. I need to remove the butt
stock and clean the entire action with brake clean and compressed air before it
will work. This is the result of TOO MUCH FLAME trying to get through
the small hole in the breech plug.
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
Too much energy:
no idea who started the 209 craze but I believe that it provides way more energy
than is required to get the job done. Try this experiment for yourself. Take
your ramrod with a jag and a clean damp patch, push it all the way down the
barrel of your muzzleloader. Mark the ramrod where it meets the end of the
barrel with a strip of masking tape. Put a 209 into the breach plug, close the
gun, cock the hammer and pull the trigger. With our Encore, the ramrod will get
blown 6"- 8" up the barrel with just the force of the 209. If we do the same
experiment with a large rifle primer, the ramrod moves less than 1".
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.
More fine tuning options:
Large rifle primers come in a variety of ranges and qualities. One
can experiment with Standard, Magnum and Bench Rest to add one more variable to
Reduce the cost of
Large Rifle primers cost up to 40% less than 209
primers. With that saving, the initial expense of the LARGE
RIFLE PRIMER ADAPTER will be recovered in a very short time.
