Works great in my TC Omega. Cleaner burning and easier clean up than BP. Easier to ignite than pellets. Accuracy was slightly better also. Only problem I experienced was with a Wolf inline, Could not get it to ignite. Wolf makes a special breach plug made especially for use with Blackhorn 209.

Absolutely love Blackhorn 209 powder. I have used it for about three years now. Like PA/MDBowhunter said, it is really clean burning and easy to clean. I have not had any ignition problems. It is recommended to use regular shotshell primers, not the muzzleloading ones.

I use 120 grains of Blackhorn 209 behind a 300 grain Hornady Saboted SST Bullet. I have killed a bull elk and two black bears with that setup.

I use 100 gr of BH209 with the 200 gr TC shockwave in my CVA Optima V2 for deer in the early muzzleloader season. Shoots great, puts deer down. I use CCI 209 magnum primers. Cleans easily with Hoppe's #9. Best powder choice for an inline.

Used BH for sometime cleans up with Hoppes, also recently change my encore rifle inline to a precision rifle large rifle primer breech plug using CCI mag rifle primers, less crud in the breech plug than shotgun primers.

Great powder. I have used it since it came out. Truth be told it's a rifle powder. Cleans easy smokes less. Don't absorb moisture. Nothing to dislike.

OK, another question. I noticed the breech plugs Blackhorn sell (R) are counter bored ~.500".

Have anyone found this to be necessary for consistent ignition when using Blackhorn?
My rifle is a .45 CVA Hunterbolt. I've already replaced the original plug with the Acura hex style which is faced off like the one on the left. and wondering if it would be a good idea or reason to counter bore it the same way.

I tried Blackhorn for the first time this year. Works great in my TC impact. Accurate and cleans up nicely.
