Hello! New to smokeless Muzzleloaders and just picked up a Encore Bergara 45-70 full bull with asg 209 plug from the classifieds! I have a couple questions! The seller said they were shooting 55 gr of imr 4198 and 250 fury startip with light blue sabot with holes touching at 100! Would there be a difference in using H4198 vs the IMR 4198? Also what 209 primers do you recommend?
I’ve also thought about trying sabotless! Have you guys had good results going sabotless in the 45-70 conversions? What load would you recommend? 250 grain or 275 grain bullet? Thanks

I haven’t gotten to shot it yet but I did pick up some federal 209A primers and when I put them in, without firing, I can’t even get them out with my fingers! Is this normal? I put a Winchester primer in it and they come right out! The plug that’s in it is a asg savage 209 with the bushing
