11x60 (.43 Mauser) load with Blackhorn 209
Wonder if anyone can give me some info or opinions here. I have a near mint M71 carbine that I have shot a little with smokeless loads. Have been wanting to try something with a little "smoke" but don't want to get into the possible risk of corrosion and the more complicated hot water washing and cleaning this bolt and receiver would require as compared to my traditional smokepoles. Thought instead of using the traditional black powder I use, I would try the Buckhorn 209 I have been reading/hearing about. Supposedly cleans like smokeless, and totally non-corrosive, without the crud ring left by 777 and others. Can't find any data for this cartridge. I was thinking the .45-90 case is nearly exactly the same diameter/length/volume, but with a heavier bullet, so those loads should be good for the 11x60. Your opinions on this idea and the Buckhorn 209?
