i tried them all. The Triple Se7en give less blow bak plus with T7 loose...less crud ring. They aint as hot. They all will go BANG nevertheless!!

I use the regulat Win 209 primers, but would like to try the Triple 7 ones if they burn cleaner. I use regular 2F black powder in all my muzzy`s.

I switched to the Win Triple Se7en 209 2 years ago. They are definitely cleaner. The pop is about half as loud as a reg 209 when snappin one off.

Likely from blow back thru breech plug. A cooler primer will likely help. I have a White Super 91 .504 inline that gets alot of blow back. I put elec tape on bottom of scope to protect.

I just use what ever I have for the shotguns. Usually winchester 209's. I haven't had one fail me yet. I see no point in changing something that works.

Totally Agree!
They all work & will ALL go BANG!! If you have shot enuff though..you will obviously find that some result in less blowback & less crud ring(if T7 shot). For an occasional shooter...likely not worth changing.

My uncle shot 3 groups using 3 different primers from a TC Triumph. 90gr. 777, 250 TC superglides. He shot Winchesters, 777 and Federal Fusion. The diffrence at about 70yds was about an inch. The Fusions were almost touching.

I personally did my research and was convinced by what I read that the 25acp conversion for my Encore was gonna do the trick eliminating the "flyer". So far have not really noticed that much of a diffrence. Need to shoot more to be sure though. Will be disappointed if it does not after spending over $100 to make the conversion.

I am using Blackhorn 209 powder and in most muzzleloaders, it requires a full strength 209 primer like the ones used to reload shotgun shells. The .45 cal Knight DISC Elite that I am using the bare 209 primer conversion breech plug with, cuts down the primer blow back (no scope burn) if I use the Winchester 209 primer because they fit better. I have tried Rem STS, Federal 209A and CCI but they each have just a little difference in depth or width to them.

FWIW, the two inlines that I used T7 in, did just fine with a #11 cap. T7 doesn't require all that a 209 primer has to offer to ignite. My experience has been that the .25 ACP conversion breech plugs work well with T7 using small rifle primers.

Those new remington green primers are great, they are so clean burning and easier to cleap up your action after shooting.

I got 500 Winchester 209's when I first started shooting my in-line I have @ 150 left and have not had any issues with them. I may switch when I run out or mix and match a few different brands to see if there is any difference.
