    This WA/OR/ID ignition regulation kinda throws a monkey wrench in things. I dont see any reason to have restrictions beyond Colorado's. It will be interesting to see how/if my zero changes when I go back to a 209 and FPB for CO.

    I couldn't get shockeys to group for me when I tried it (several years ago). Found blackhorn 209 and would never even consider changing. I use it to push a Barnes ML and its a very lethal combo. Haven't had a deer take even a step yet, and I've shot 7 or 8 with it now. That buck in my avatar took a high shoulder shot from the BH209 and Barnes ML combo. Folded him up.

    I'll add that I use RIO 209 primers. Out of a TC Encore.

    I use the knight redhots which are made by barns where I can use a sabot and I have been very happy with them too. My deer this year never knew what happened!! I recovered 1 in a deer once and it expanded perfectly.

    Colorado regs say "shotgun primer only". Who says a M/L 209 can't be used in shotgun reloading? The only difference in appearance is that the crushable center is black on the M/L primers. I am going to load up a couple of B/P shotgun shells used them and see if there is any difference. Yes FFF does burn a little hotter than FF. I shoot both interchangeably. I shoot about 1000 b/p rounds a month cowboy shooting and really can't tell a lot of performance difference between FF & FFF. Whatever I get cheaper, that's what I shoot. I just bought 2 cases of APP FFF (24#) for $15.00/lb, delivered to me...no shipping or hazmat.

    I didnt know CO had a reg on ignition. I have always used shotgun primers other then here where I have to use a musket or #11 cap.

    I saw that but I take that to mean any ignition would be legal in CO.
