Federal Premium Ammunition welcomes the new 209 Muzzleloading Primer, designed to work with the B.O.R. Lock MZ bullets, to its lineup of new products.
The primer formulation is designed to resist moisture and provide a hot, reliable ignition of both the granulated powder and pellets under any condition. The primer also minimizes “crud ring” fouling in the breech area. Crud ring is the accumulation of burnt powder and residue that forms during firing. Normally found in front of the breech plug, where powder ignition under the projectile takes place, the crud ring can either be a hard residue or my pliable. Either way, the accumulation can lead to loading problems. Federal Premium’s 209 primer aims to lessen the amount of build-up, therefore, preventing shooters from having to clean as often.
Complementing the B.O.R. Lock MZ bullets, a .50 caliber polymer tipped design, the load promises accuracy and power.
The 209 Muzzleloading Primer comes in a 100-count pack and is currently being delivered to dealers with a price point of $8.95.
We got in two of our best-selling Turkish imports from Landor Arms – the AR-style LND-117 shotgun and the bullpup BPX 902 – to give them a whirl on the range and see if the reliability could be paired with the affordable price.
Marlin once claimed their Model 39 as the eldest continually produced, shoulder-fired rifle of all time. Though that record ended when the Marlin brand was parted-off to Ruger, the rimfire world is anticipating a return of this classic.
