Muzzleloader primers will not reliable ignite BH209. Mag primers are what you need. CCI magnum, Federal 209M, Remington STS.

The Remington is not designated mag, but many use them with BH209.

With the shim, you might get away using standard primers but not MZL primers.

MZL primer is a very cool temp primer, so no, its a no no primer for BH209.

You can use the factory plug but the BH209 plug is a lot better.

Ask for carlos, he even sells BH209 in 10oz jugs and 5LB jugs. 5lbers are $175. He has the CCI 209M primers in stock.
