What’s the next best thing to bh209?
You shouldn’t clean BH 209I didn’t find BH any easier to clean than Triple 7 pellets. However, both are easy to clean with soapy water.
Usually, mine stays loaded until the next season. Lol.
And a 10yr old bottle will go bang just like it did the day it was made. All other subs degrade to some extent and are far more hygroscopic. They suck up moister from the air. A rifle loaded up with BH209 can pretty much stay loaded all season until the shot is available. Unfired you have virtually no chance of rust and even fired the fouling is far less corrosive.You shouldn’t clean BH 209
With soapy water. It should be cleaned with an oil based cleaner like Hoppes
That said, 777 is just as easy to clean. The real advantage of BH 109 is that I can go to the range and shoot 25-30 shots without Swabbing once.
Not sure how that means anything other than i have never had a plug stick using BH209. Ive had plenty stick using other subs.My centerfires don’t have a removable breech plugs, either.

BH209 is nitro based. Nitrate esters to be exact. So its a toned down smokeless with a tiny bit of organic compounds added. Cant imagine why i would want to introduce water into the equation.
Well it happens to literally 1000s of shooters each year and its a well know issue with Triple7. Maybe ive been doing this for well over 20 years and seen it happen countless times to many others that are far from novice level too.
I can put literally nothing on a BH209 plug and shoot as many shots as i want without doing a thing. Try that with Triple7 and you got ball buster when its time to remove the plug.
And that is important because????My centerfires don’t have a removable breech plug, either.
