Looking on Blackhorns website there is a lot of good info on what conditions are required for proper ignition of this extremely popular powder.
I can tell that my CVA Buckhorn starter gun will not meet the tight requirements for primer and breech tolerances.
So my question is, who's ML performs best with this new powder?
That is without having to take out a loan to purchase this new ML.

I would second the Optima. However, I'm looking forward to next year with a BH209 converted Rem 700.

Your looking to pick a gun based on the powder you want to shoot? That seems backwards.

Not exactly. Hoping to upgrade from my CVA Buckhorn and whatever I chose it needs to perform well with the BH209 powder or any other. From the Blackhorn website even some modern innovations such as easy to remove longer breech plugs may not perform well with their powder. Want to be careful in my choice with all options considered.

CVA break action with the new blackhorn209 breech plug. I'd highly recommend the new Optima.

Not absolutely required, but highly recommended.

tc impact shoots it great as well

I did a fair amount of research before switching this past year to BH209, here is the best list I found of guns that shoot it well, recommended by the manufacturer.

I have the original series CVA Accura without the quick release breech plug. BH209 does excellent in this gun. If I snap it shut firmly I get virtually zero blow back and full charge from the Federal 209 to the primer.

I have two Knight DISC Extremes, one a Master Hunter, that both shot BH209 very well. I use CCI 209M primers as recommended on the BH website. You can pick them up used for around $300.
