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.
