Is the hole for the 209 maybe not clear after cleaning, and the first shot is blowing it out, causing not enough ignition/spark/heat left to fire the whole charge, like the pellets are fusing a bit? Remember that substitutes are propellents vs. BP is an explosive. Propellents burn from heat source out. Not enough heat, slow burn to start, almost like a fizzzboom, and the boom being smaller?
Maybe Pop a 209 before the first load and then see what happens?
