The Sportsmans Warehouse in Reno has had Cheddite 209s by the sleeve the last couple of times I was in there.
I use em like Win 209s in my shotgun loads, although I use Win 209s for my muzzleloader.
If I was loading 150gr and exploding milk jugs at 25yd it didn't matter.
Sorry, no I don't know where any are. I've been shooting MLers from 1970 but have only used caps, flints, or a burning rope. Good luck in your search.
As best I can figure muzzle loader 209s, musket caps and number 11s use around 0.3 grains of primer material.
A standard non-magnum 209 uses around 1.2gr.
My extreme spread using shotgun 209s was something like 300fps, on my most accurate 70gr load.
My milk jug exploder load using 150gr was like 100fps ES, but those shot kind of all over the place to the point where I wouldn't want to try and shoot a deer with it at 100yds and didn't matter if I used no#11, musket, shotgun 209s or BP 209s.
Not if he's using Blackhorn 209, which is ALL I use.
