Default BH 209 - Still the Champ!

Took my Encore 50 Cal out today to reaffirm the zero from last year.

Put 120 gr (equivalent) down the pipe, followed by a 250 gr Hornady 45 Cal bullet encased in a Harvester Sabot and slipped a Winchester 209 Primer in the breech plug. Touched her off at a Shoot n C target at 100 yds and was not in the least surprised to see the strike 1 inch high just above the bull.

Repeated the above 4 more times and could have covered the group with a half dollar.

A half dollar is pretty big, you say? This particular half dollar is 2 quarters, one stacked on top of the other to make a half dollar.

BH 209 is the best! Easy clean up. Consistent, accurate, and fun to shoot.

Agreed. Except the lock is on the wrong side of the rifle.
Good shooting lastofthebreed. Sounds like BH209 sure works for you.
My champ is real black powder. This group was shot at 50 yards with Goex 3fg using iron sights, off a tripod while sitting in a chair. Shot with a .54 flintlock I built over 15 years ago.
