Which powder is more accurate

Using those 209 primers it will ignite anything. I have friends that like the pellets because it takes out human error for consistency loading.

I use real FFFg in my sidelock pistol and long gun because the #11 primers don’t play well with BP substitutes. And it burns dirty.

I shoot a T/C triumph. Blackhorn 209 has been the best for me. Couldn’t get anything else to be consistent. Started shooting Blackhorn 209 and stopped messing with the others. Not saying the others aren’t good, just saying they weren’t right for this gun.

My TC Optima loves 3 pyrodex pellets.
My knight with 2 pellets would put 3 shots in the same hole I've never seen a smoke pole shot that good.
My CVA Bobcat with 60gr FFFg will hit a paper plate at 80yds most of the time. My KY Rifle cut down to a pistol with 30gr FFFg will hit a deer somewhere in or near the vitals at 40yds 😅.

These new in-lines almost make me want to upgrade.

I own a T/C Black Diamond .50 cal, which likes 90 gr. loose (Volume) Triple 7 FFG powder. I looked at using Blackhorn 209 powder but found out that you can't use Blackhorn powder in a M/L with an open breech, it must be a closed breech. Something to do with pressure produced, and it requires a 209 Magnum primer for proper ignition.

My Traditions Buckstalker shoots like crap with anything but pellets, and my Vortek Strikerfire doesn't like anything but Blackhorn.

It's like "what's the best choke tube?" Just gotta starting trying different combos.

a lot is blowed out the muzzle and never burned in heavy magnum charges. it dosnt burn consistently like that I think
Yep. I’ve got an old side hammer I still use from time to time. Used to shoot 100gr of powder. Shot a doe one time in the snow. As I started towards her I could actually see the powder blown out on the snow. I now shoot 75gr of FFF. My accuracy improved greatly. Haven’t shot one in the snow since, so don’t know if I still waste any. But it taught me a valuable lesson.

I'm going to RS or FFg or FFG. Which 1 do you think would be more accurate in a CVA Accura V2
You're going to have buy different powder and spend a day at the range experimenting. Only way you'll find out what shoots best out of your rifle. To save money, be best to find friends that will donate enough powder to fire a couple of loads of each.
