My son went by our local hardware where we buy a lot of our reloading supplies, ammo and guns. When he was looking at the 209 primers there was one stack that was labeled " for muzzleloaders only!" Does anybody know why that would be? What's the difference?

One of the motives for that designation is so that they can jack the price up. Use to be that you could use and 209 style primer on an inline but the suppliers realized the muzzle loaders would never buy a lot of them like trap, skeet or sporting clays guys. But they could differentiate them and mark them up.

They're designed to be milder than those for shotshells. They were created because some of the black powder substitutes (Triple-7 in particular) get a "crud ring" of fouling in the bore. The thinking was that a robust primer creates enough gas to propel the projectile up the bore before proper powder ignition.

Don't use them for reloading.
