Default Homework BH209 200shockwave.

Working with a gun for my daughter (23 old)- looking for a light load. Gun is Traditions Lightning Bolt. This gun you can screw on a muzzlebreak. I had converted it to 209 primer. The screw in 209 nipple has a .040" hole and there is some blowback. I had no misfires or delays. 90 yards- 60 grains weighed BH209 = 86 by volume. I used Black RTV silicon to bed the stock.

Not to bad, but I dont think it liks the muzzle break. That particular bullet usually likes more powder in my guns for some reason. Lee

Lee- That’s good to know. I am trying to keep recoil low for her. I have some great groups with (86gr BH209) Barnes 195 and 245 that I will post when I get time. I need a study hall period to complete my homework.
