I have one recommendation for you Jim.  Remove the palm saver from your ram rod if you are going to leave the rod in place when you're shooting.  It will always jump out and an inch or so and could turn a little.  I shot mine off one time because I didn't pay attention to it.  



Joe, I saw what you were talking about today.  Weather warmed up to mid 30's so I went to the range today and I noticed after every shot the ramrod came out a couple inches. But it was fun and interesting shooting one.

One of the range guys today was watching me shoot and it said it was so cool watching the smoke come out the barrel. :rtup

BH209 is reduced smoke compared to the other powders. One year while hunting I had to wait for the deer I shot to turn to clear the smoke so I could follow it using Pyrodex. It was a still morning with very little wind.

I was waiting to see this big cloud of smoke, like I had seen on the TV hunting shows.  But glad I didn't have all that.  Just a small cloud that dissipated very fast and no smell.  Another day like yesterday and I will have to call Carlos and order more stuff, which is a good thing.

What's a muzzleloader without clouds of white smoke, and the fragrance of burned sulfur?

Everything else is a wannabe.  clown

my first deer with the caplock I thought I lost him....when I shot the smoke hindered my vision of him..the air was so still so it lingered...I knew he was about 50 yards ahead...so walked over and seen the blood trail....found him 15 yards away....I have a Traditions Buckskinner carbine..20" barrel an 1-20 twist...I was shooting a 320 grain maxi ball....2 f goex powder...was a good day...first muzzy deer...

the WP has a differently designed transition in the flash channel to the flash hole. 60* transition i believe. Its a smoother flowing breech plug system but I never noticed one big of difference between the 2.

Thanks frontier. I shoot a cva apex and I thought that cva was the only company that made a BH209 breech plug for the apex. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on something that may be better than what I am shooting now.
