This is the first that I have ever heard a specific black powder propellant not suitable for a given ML rifle. Maybe that's why I shoot TC rifles? Just kidding folks. I would have to look at a CVA Buckhorn to see what you are saying. Any ML rifle shooting loose powder would be able to shoot Black Horn powder.
FG, I took a look on-line at the Buckhorn model and for the life of me I can't see what you mean. The system looks like any other spring loaded firing system. I see no difference in whatever propellant charge you are firing that the chance you are referring to could happen. Black Horn powder wouldn't be any different. I would need additional information as to why Black Horn powder wouldn't be suitable for any modern muzzleloader. If the manufacture states do not use Black horn powder then follow their advice. The rifle is rated for 150 gr charge, 3 pellets or loose powder??????
