Along with being new to this site I am also new to using powder in place of pellets... I have yet to pour a load and don't really know how to go about it. I hope this does not seem like a stupid question because I like to do things right the first time, so any input would be appreciated.
I do have BH 209, shotgun primers, and .50 powerbelts. I did purchase a plastic measurer that I would pour the powder in to get my 100gr. of powder but is there anything else I need to properly pour the powder?
It sounds like you're doing it ok.
Are you getting good ignition with no delays or misfires? The BH 209 needs a hot 209 primer to be consistent. I like the CCI magnum primers.
