209 Muzzleloading Primer - 1

Formulated to resist moisture and provide a hot, reliable ignition, 209 Muzzleloading Primers aim to add consistency to muzzleloaders.

Among the ranks of off-the-shelf ammo shooters, primers barely raise an eyebrow. As long as the metallic buttons of pressure-sensitive explosives are seated correctly, they’re not worth a second thought.

There are other realms in the world of firearms where primers are deadly serious business, perhaps none more than that of muzzleloaders. Given their exposure to more of the ignition-extinguishing elements than primers found in other firearm types, they can become the make-or-break element of the system.

Federal Premium Ammunition has taken this issue head on with the release of the 209 Muzzleloading Primer. The primers are designed to add a level of consistency to the classical-style firearms, making them even more reliable when the shooter heads afield.

Designed to work in conjunction with Federal’s B.O.R. Lock MZ bullets, the 209 Muzzleloading Primer is formulated to resist moisture and provide a hot, reliable ignition. The primers work with both granulated powder and pellets and help minimize crud ring fouling in the breech area. This last aspect not only makes the primers an ideal ignition mechanism but also one that aids in keeping a muzzleloader clean and easy to load.

Presently, Federal is offering 209 Muzzleloading Primers in 100-count packs with an MSRP of $8.95.
