BH is good stuff
I'm just a spike buck but that is because I have lived awhile and probably past my physical prime.
Started BP hunting about ten years ago, wasn't to good at it.
Started with a knight, then the one with the little disc in it then the pro hunter by encoreTC. used pyrodex, bp 777 for years, got a little better, finally my cousin talked me into to loose blackhorn and now i do a lot better.
it is remarkably clean but if you have the chance i would still clean every few shots, maybe just a dry rag or swab. and of course at the end of season really give er a good swabbing
I'm now shooting a .45 cal pro hunter with a Bergara barrel and can hold 2" at a hundred. If you are any good at all you will do better but hey i do what i can.
BH is pretty expensive but i feel what is a 160 or 170 class buck worth. It's like oil for your car you run the best you can afford because engines are a lot more expensive. I shoot 110 gr of blackhorn with a 200 gr hornady and it moves along pretty good. Bh loose when you get up to 120 grain your pressures are pretty close to max.
Let me know how you make out.
But just come back safe!
