Re: Using Modified 22 Hornet brass instead of 209 prim
From around 2' at 100 yards using 777 or 3f pryodex to under an inch. Haven't used the blackhorn powder yet. I started with it back when the 209 were starting. started back in the day with a mk85 and caps. 209 were hotter, most people used shotgun primers. There where no specific primers made for blackpowder guns.
the theory behind them is still sound, but todays primers are much better than when these were the hot ticket
