    A crud ring is a ring of crud that develops right over the load in the bore when it's been fired. T7 is the worse powder for that happening. The lighter powered 209 muzzleloader primers were developed to help with the crud ring. The crud ring hurts accuracy, and makes loading the next load harder. I won't use T7 powder for that very reason.

    I've read some guys say they don't get a crud ring. It's hard to believe. I've had 10 inlines, and they all got a crud ring with T7. I've had ramrod with patches stuck in the crud ring trying to remove it. It's one of the advantages of using BH 209. It doesn't get any crud rings.

    What about the crud ring with white hots? I heard they were clean burning powder pellets.

    They get it too. Rumor is they are T7 without the graphite, but you know how rumors are.

    I guess I either havent had a problem with it or I dont know any better. lol I started with pyrodex pellets, then switched to 777 because it burned alot cleaner. I use fffg not ffg. I have a theory that the finer powder burns a bit cleaner and you get a little more out of it but it could just be in my head

    It's not in your head. It's a well known fact 3F burns cleaner than 2F.

    Do you swab between shots?

    Anyway, if you're not getting much of a crud ring with 209 primers. It will be even better with #11 caps. Try the #11 magnum caps before you mess with musket caps. You should like them, but you'll need a capper to make it easier to use them.
