Re: BH209 Powder??

How does one dispense BH209...is there a screw-on spout available for their jug? My local gun shop carries the BH209 but I didn't see anything that would attach to the jug to make dispensing very easy. Thanks!

Re: BH209 Powder??

jk,be careful weighing your charges.Blackhorn should me measured by volumetric.Multiply your volumetric by 0.7 to get scale grains.In other words 80grs.by volume would be 56 grs on the scale,100 grs by volume would be 70 grs weighed on scale and 120 grs volume would be 84 grs weighed.You really don't get any more accuracy out of weighing than you do by using a powder measure.That has been proven many times in black powder shooting.Also use regular 209 primers.Blackhorn recommends cci or federal.one final thing when cleanng afterwards use a bore solvent like you would use on your rifle.Good Shooting!!!!!!!!

My loads are 70 grains by weight. To me, weighing my loads is kind of like wearing Scentlok clothes, it may not make a real difference but the perceived value is worth it to me.

Thompson Center cap and spout will fit the Blackhorn jug.
