I am using Pyrodex RS with Tripple 7 primers. When placing a primer in Breach plug Primer will stick out over a 1/16 of a Inch. If gun is tilted upward the primer will fall out. Should CVA be contacted never had this problem before . Am concerned. When shooting I get a 3 1/2 to 4 " puff of smoke between Breach plug and firing pin housing.

Not an issue, its supposed to stick out so you can remove it with your fingers. Also, you have to close the rifle with the rear section of the stock, tip the barrel up, and it falls out and crushes between the frame and plug, normally making an ugly scar inside the frame.

Go to the video section, there's some videos on the gap between the primer and firing pin bushing. CVA uses loose head space and so theres aprox .011 - .012" gap between the primer and firing pin bushing. It makes a dirty mess as im sure you've found out.

The loose headspace IMO is what can & will cause the shooter to have a misfire when using BH209. If you are using a modded plug or have installed the blackhorn209 breech plug you shouldnt have an issue, but that loose head space causes the primer to lose a lot of its heat and when that happens, a misfire can happen.
