Default First time using Blackhorn

Gotta say I like it. As I'm extremely slow in loading... part because I'm slow, part because I was teaching my daughter so, no swabbing between shots helped quicken the pace. It liked the Winchester 209 primers I had.... did not like the Fusions. Primer fired... second delay... charge ignited. Kinda throws off your point of aim.
My daughter didn't like the way the recoil looked, so she passed.
Maybe next time.
85 gr ... 250 gr SST with a black Harvester sabot. The Sidekick shot well at both 25 and 50 yards with a red dot 1x. Unfortunately, I didn't wait for the cease-fire to collect the target.

switch to hotter primers like the CCI 209 Magnum. The W209 primers are more of a mild primer IMO.

My TC ProHunter likes the Win 209's with BH 209.
