Question by Del in KS. Uploaded on July 15, 2009
Del - on the package it says for fully enclosed 209 primers. I won't even try it on my in-line Austin Halleck because the primer is held by a spring wrapped partially open primer system. I would only use it if the primer sets in a full primer "chamber."
I'm certain it doesn't work with a flintlock.......
The only limiting factor is it is only compatible with solid breech, 209-primer-fired inlines and black powder cartridges!!!!!!!!
That is what I suspected. So far nothing works like old fashioned Black in a flinter. Thanks for the info. Not many places carry BP anymore you know.
That is a shame. I am sorry Del, but it only works in in-line guns because it increases the pressure too much. A 110-grain load of Blackhorn 209 is like a 150-grain load of Tripple Seven.
