Blackhorn 209 is only recommended with two specific primers - see attached.

The other thing to check is you breechplug flash channel. It can look clear yet still be obstructed.

I Have Four:

1- TC Triumph; Bushnell Banner 1X-4X with circular reticle; 2White Hot Pellets w/ 240 grain JHP 45 cal pistol bullet and Harvester sabot.

2-TC Black Diamond (safe queen) same load as Triumph;Weaver 4X on see under mounts. The see under mounts are to make cleaning disassembly easier.

3- Bell Perc Hawken caplock (wall decoration) 80grains of black powder. Buffalo Bullet Ball-ette hollow base.

4- Traditions Tennessee Rifle flintlock 70 grains black powder w/patched roundball.

Probably use the Triumph early muzzloader unless I have a deer in the freezer from NYS rifle season.

Latter part of muzzloader season including January in Z5 will use the flintlock.

This thread reminds me I have to renew that stupid NJ rifle permit. It's a shame how they nickle and dime us in this state.

Gonic. 50cal magnum inline,scoped with a Leopold 2x7. I feed it 120grs of loose pyrodex topped with a 465gr lead slug I cast myself, sparked by a musket cap. Nothing has every escaped her fury.

For those of you that never heard of them, Gonic was a great little manufacturer in New Hampshire that has gone out of business after a legal battle with Thompson Center. Well before Thompson produced the Encore, Gonic was taking Thompson's Contender single shot handgun frames and turning them into muzzleloader rifles very similar to the later Encore. Thompson sued them and came out with the Encore. Gonic also produced inline rifles which is what I have. They were pricey but well worth it at the time, as inlines were just coming out. Mine was about $1200. It was a small family business which was eventually went out of business after the lawsuit

I remember when the rifle permit was good for 10 years.
