How many have went back to previous powders after using BH209?

I still use BH209, but not near as frequently as I did when it first came out. It's a good powder but the cost per shot and the extra cleaning of the breach plug makes me use other subs more often.

Or those who don't like spending extra money
Or those who can get the same results from other subs
Or those who have guns that won't shoot it reliably
Or those who don't like drilling out breach plugs
Or those who find it just as easy to clean up the other subs

I just got some bh209, what are the down sides to this powder? is clean up a issue, is white hots a better choice? I shoot a tc encore with a 250gr sst bullett, what load do you guys suggest? I've only heard good things about bh209, is loading and clean up really that different from 13ggg?

It's personal preference, but I won't go back. My guns shoot cleaner with it, clean up is easy using regular solvent, and performance is better.

Some guns won't group with it, but they are few and far between from what I've seen. Pay a little extra attention to the flame channel in the breech plug and you are good to go.

As far as cost, most people don't shoot enough sub-powder in a year to feel the extra cost. If you shoot a lot it will be more expensive, but still worth it to me. I have one gun that I can't use it reliably in, that one still eats 777 3F and it takes 3 times as long to clean.

BH209 is about as close to smokeless as you can get. It's also the most expensive powder on the market.

Not sure on the cost difference but I only clean my gun once a year now and it's not really very dirty then compared to 777. I won't go back!!
