BH209 is recommended to be used with a hot primer like the Remington STS or CCI 209M.....

Not sure if it works better than 777 which I was using, but my Encore is a lot cleaner using the BH209. I was shooting 5 or 6 times with the 777 before swabbing because I didn't like to clean between shots when hunting. With BH209 I've shot 15 times without any issues.

I just switched this weekend from 777 pellets to BH209 in my tc impact and all I can say is wow!

I put on a new scope and had to get it sighted in so I figured it was as good a time as any to make the change and see if it was worth it. Shot ten times with no zero cleaning between shots, the most time consuming part of the day was measuring the powder. It took me 30 minutes but got it sighted in 2" high at 50 yards so should be good to go and the best part was the cleanup.

Previously I dreaded cleaning my ml with the pellets, such a pain. This took two patches with hoppes #9 solvent and it was good as new, followed up with a dry patch and then one with some lubrication and I was done. Cleanup took less then 5 minutes including the breech plug and I couldn't be happier, thanks everyone for the suggestions.
