    I just bought a TC Triumph from a friend. I haven't got to shoot it yet. I need to heal an injury first, but I like the feel and operation of the gun. I just hope I can get a conical to work in it.

    Good to hear, but some TC's can get finicky about shooting conicals. The Hornady FPB is the one I want it to shoot. I can buy them anywhere, and are much cheaper than Thors. They also fit when I tried them. The bore has been polished bigger than most Triumphs, so i'm not sure the biggest Thor would fit anyway.

    The FPB is a good performing bullet, so i'm good with using it.

    I guess its been a while since I looked at this thread. Im curious what is different about the breech plug for Blackhorn 209? I have never tried it. I have been using 777 fffg and winchester 209 primers. Does anyone know if anyone makes a breech plug for I knight disc extreme to use 11 caps? I would consider some ML hunts here in ID and WA if I could make mine legal (cant use 209 primers in either). As for safety 1 of the reasons I chose the knight is for the double safety. When the nut on the back of the bolt is screwed in there is no way it can go off. The only gun I ever had go off when I didnt want it to was a remington 700. Luckily no one was hurt.

    I believe the breach plug for blackhorn 209 has a bigger hole going from primer to powder.

    Musket, this is exact reason I bought the disc extreme.

    I can use it in every state I might hunt in the future.

    Maybe umpqua can comment on the two different breech plugs, I believe he has both setups on his.

    Thanks DR! Thats just what I been looking for. I looked some a while back but I think it was around when Knight went under so prob why I didnt get very far. I have been very happy with my Disc Extreme. After we threw it in a bathtub for 40 minutes and it fired perfectly I was sold on it! And that was after hunting in the rain for 2 days with it! I did that just because Knight said it would still fire and my friend said it wouldnt. This friend has a knight original disc and it delay fired after 1 day of rain on this same hunt. After our testing on mine he bought a disc extreme conversion kit on the way home. I still say Knight owes me a commission on that sale

    Another question. What is the difference between a #11 and a Musket cap? The only experience I have with this is a replica pistol I have that uses #11's. I cant remember what its a replica of right now, lol, but its fun to shoot! What would be better or what are the pros/cons of either?

    The musket cap is bigger with a hotter and longer spark than a normal #11 cap. The #11 magnum caps have a spark as hot as a musket cap, but it's not as long a flame.
