Your supposed to use actual 209 shotgun primers...Federal 209A is what I used.
I believe that was the primers i was using,at least i know they were shotgun primers cause that is what they recamended so that is what i bought.
There are a few makes which requires the hole in the breech plug to be made a little bigger.
Mine is a knight long range mz . I am not drilling on it. That prob would work . The 777 works fine.

CVA / Traditions use a 3mm or #32 drill bit to clean the flash channel

TC/Knight use an 1/8" drill bit

I read that on other sites and also the Blackhorn website about some ML's are miss firing after a couple shots due to the hole being too small and getting some buildup. At first you could send them your breech plug and they would do it for no charge, but I think they tell you now to take it to a gun smith to have it done. They recommend a hot 209 primer and Federal is the hottest follwed by a CCI Mag primer. I'm using the CCI mags and my brother has the Federals and neither has had any issues.

So once the breach plug is drilled it can not be used on 777 any more?

Post what you shoot and then i can tell you if it needs to be modified or not.
