100 grains [weighed] of Blackhorn 209 out of an accura. Wow! Hope you meant volume.MrTom wrote:I had nine of these bullets, the copper ones, and shot them on paper at 100 yards over 100 grains [weighed] of Blackhorn 209 powder. They loaded pretty loose in my Accura and the pattern was somewhat open compared to what an XTP or deep curl 300 grain shot. I don't know that I would order them.

Leadslinger wrote:Checked with Western, they did not recommend BH209 in slam fire guns (MK-85 style) but were OK with MK-95 since it has a bolt type mechanism and posi-fire 38 capsules to seal up the breech. They recommended I watch for signs of blowback with heavier charges. I followed up with a call to Knight, thumbs up as well but recommended I keep an eye on the primer modules for signs of damage and to be sure the MK-95 bolt was staying closed after each shot. I appreciate the heads up Ron, I’m also open to learning more about Muzzleloading (my obsession).
Any MK-95 shooters out there using BH209, having any issues?
