BlackHorn 209 High Performance Muzzleloading Powder
I'm glad some people are having good results with BH.
I made 32 shots with this stuff and could not get a group. I also had miss fires and hang fires. I talked to the folks at western powder and was told I was probably doing a number of things wrong. Not the case. I started with a brand new rifle and a BH breech plug. I also used a CCI magnum primer which was almost impossible to find. All of the recommendations western powder made. These inline MLs will go bang with good powder. T7 and white hots always go bang. BH is finicky. Just imagine a 12 pointer in sight you drop the hammer and fsssssstt and your bullet drops out. If you still want to try bh 209 call them and ask for a sample.better yet I will give you some. I hope all you hunters have a great season.

Clean and accurate.
So far, this is hands down the best 'black powder substitute' I've tried. It burns clean, leaving a much easier cleaning job. If you run a spit patch between shots, you could probably shoot all day with this stuff. Also, much more accurate than pellets, pyrodex, or Goexx, in my experience. Loose powder can be stored in speed loader tubes, this stuff is a deer hunter's dream. Ditch the pellets, get this stuff and don't look back.

the real deal
this powder is the absolute best on the market for inlines, hands down...i have a TC Triumph Bone Collector and after trying a couple different types of pellet powders that left me cleaning my bore after every 2 shots i decided to try this and I am beyond happy that I did...shot 20 rounds at the range today and didnt swab the bore once...the 20th round loaded as easy as the 1st...unheard of until this stuff hit the market!...as far as accuracy, you won't find anything better...brought the gun home from range and clean-up was easiest I have ever experienced...bottom line, if you have one of today's high end inlines and you're not shooting this powder, you're missing the bus...and if anyone wants to know, I shoot the Hornady 300 grain FPB's and the CCI 209M primers...my TC shoots 1 inch groups at 100 yards with this combo...can't beat it...happy shooting

Blackhorn 209 is the best powder I have ever used. I use to shoot 777 both powder and pellets.
With Blackhorn the accuracy improved to less than an inch with 110 gr and 250 Gr bullets.
Easy clean up when compared to 777, plus, no powder burn ring either! No, brushing out of the barrel needed, just swab clean!
A dear friend who is a professional shooter said "This is a Game Changer" and he is correct!
The best powder ever!
