Look up Ed's Gun Shop in Vass, North Carolina on the net. He was selling Blackhorn 209 for $27.00/bottle. Send them an e mail and mark it with Attn: Carlos, as he handles black powder inquiries. That price was total, shipped and all!!
As far as your scope, nikon has a program on their website which allows you to plug in diffrent grain rounds and the powder charge and it will give you the new calculated distance between reticles for said charge.
You can also go to a local Sportsmanship Warehouse , Academy, Cabelas or reloading supply store.
If they don't stock it they can order it for you.
You also will want :
Short starter to get the bullet started
A T handle for your ramrod
A bullet puller
Hoppes powder solvent
A quick shot with volume measurement lines
Thanks for the info! As I said I ordered a T/C Encore ProHunter. It should arrive later this week.
What is the procedure for putting the powder, primer and bullet in this brand of muzzle loader? Someone mentioned using a different type of primer with the BH 209. What type/brand of primers should I buy? After cleaning the bore with the solvent should I be using any type of lubricant afterward? Also is it best to use a patch on a jag to clean the bore or use a brush instead? Or both a patch and then a brush?
I was told that I have to use some sort of lubricant on the breech plug. Again what is the best product for this?
