Hello deerdude. If you go to E Arthur Brown web site you will get the desired info you are looking for. In short you can purchase this special breech plug that hold a 25 acp casing that is primed with a small rifle primer. I believe you get 6 casings and the special breech plug for 59.00. These guys at EABCO share a lot of their knowledge to the consumer. So check it out, we can all save some money through knowledge of those who have time tested and tested...................... so muzzle loader shooters can squeeze out more consistent accuracy Have fun!!!!!

.25 ACP primer

I converted my TC Omega before season last year and the results have been outstanding. The .25 primers (brass has to be reloaded with small rifle primers) are tremendously faster and hotter than 209 primers. If you wanted to put it in a word I'd call them "crisp". At the same time I went to White Hotz pellets as well. The end result is at least 50% les smoke at discharge and 50% less residue/fouling. Shooting 209 primers and Pyrodex (150 grains) I can fire 11 shots out of my Omega before I have to swab and clean. With .25 primers and White Hotz (I get the same performance out of 100 grains Hotz vs. 150 Pyrodex) I've fired 25 shots and still didn't need to clean and swab. So personally and professionally I definitely recommend the .25ACP primersot mentioning that they are much easier to handle and place the 209's. In fact I've already done 8 conversions and expect several more prior to the October Muzzleload season this year. In fact I have a special ongoing to clean, service, check optics alignment and do the .25ACP conversion for $150.00 right now.

Hope the info helps,
