Problem with Omega and Pyrodex

Hey Guys: A young friend of mine has an Omega(new last year)and is using Pyrodex pellets and standard Winchester 209 primers. His first shot at 100 yds is good, second and third shots are totally off the paper!! Cleans the barrel, lets the gun sit a half hour, same thing-first shot is good, next two are off the paper. I haven't had time to sit with him yet and see what is going on and I have already convinced him to make the jump to Blackhorn, but for the hell of it, I would like to know what is causing this. I know that 777 primers work much better with 777 and Pyrodex powders from my own testing. I read that Pyrodex pellets have a coating on one side to aid ignition, I don't know if that is true or not, 777 pellets do not. Any ideas?? Thanks!!
