Default Bh 209

Has anyone used BH209 with T/C Triumph? What load works the best?

90-110gr is the sweet spot for any gun.

Thanks Muley. What kind of primers would you recommend?

i too would start off at 90 and work your way up.

I use CCI 209 Magnums, the TC's though i hear are cleaner using the Winchester W209 primers.

Carry an 1/8" drill bit with you as well and clean the flash channel out after 3 shots. That 1/8" channel gets clogged up pretty quickly with carbon so its important to keep it clean.

I like the CCI also for the TC and Knight. I had to clean the Knight breach hole but not the TC Triumph so for.

turbohawk,
just remember that you must use standard or magnum primers not the 777 primers

Triumph will most likely like 100 gr BH 209, CCI mag primers, TC superglide sabots/250 gr shockwave bullets. This is a tight load in the TC but pretty accurate combination. FG suggests lapping the bore to polish out any areas in-order to ease up the loading pressure required. Congrats on the purchase of the best production line of ML rifles out there! While the Leupold rifleman scope that I installed on my Triumph is not a ML scope I had it and it was new and I think I will get many years of service from it. Time will tell. I still think a 3x9x40 scope is more than ever fully justified for the new long range shooting ML rifles. Again congrats!
