    I've got a brand new CVA Accura V2. I took advice from most people on here and tried Blackhorn 209. I bought the Blackhorn breech plug too. However I'm getting a long hesitation between the cap firing and the powder going off. It has cost me 2 bucks so far. My caps are 3-4 years old Winchester brand. Is that the problem? Any advice from your experience is appreciated. I'm not looking for someone's favorite brand but people who has been through this hesitation problem. Very big thank you!

    From their website:
    We do not recommend any of the 209 primers designated for muzzleloaders (Winchester Triple 7, CCI MZL, Federal Fusion, or Remington Kleanbore). These primers are all weaker than standard shotshell 209 primers and do not provide adequate ignition for Blackhorn 209 – especially when used in a poorly designed breech plug system.

    You need to use reloading 209 primers, preferably magnums and that should fix your problem. Federal 209a or CCI 209m would be my suggestion.

    I picked mine up at Cabelas, but you can order them online.

    Sounds like wrong primers.

    I do believe that if you follow the above advice re primers, your problems will be fixed. You’re not getting enough fire to ignite your powder properly.

    Yes it did! Thanks everyone for all of your advice. I had to look around but I found the CCI magnum primers at Uncle Dan's Pawn shop in Elizabethtown. Came straight home to try them. On the first shot I knew my problem was fixed but I fired it a few more times to make sure! Again, thanks for settling my fears and concerns.

    Absolutely! I have never felt in the stand like I did when that thing hang fired the 2nd time. I knew then it wasn't a accident but something was wrong. That's a worse feeling than missing.
