    I have same set up as you,only thing to remember with the white hots is they clog up the gun quick, so I like to run a patch down every 3 shots

    Guys, Thanks for all the useful info and reassurance. Couple things I wanna respond to.

    I'm an idiot. Still worked out though. Thanks lol I'll keep that in mind.

    I just want to ensure as much consistency as possible on each shot. I use a very small fingertip full of crisco just to get a good coating. Makes ramming it easier too.

    I cannot disagree. Love that thing already.

    I noticed that after I took the gun apart. Why is that, do you think? The brand claims to be one of the cleanest burning powders out there. Am I ramming the bullet down too hard and sort of crushing the pellets?

    Lastly, I was kinda looking for more info on whether or not the loose powder breach plug is even worth the purchase. I figured with 209 shotshell primers there should be no issue ensuring a thorough ignition of the powder. Would any of you guys figure that the Buckhorn plug (right one in my picture) does a better job of this?
