OK!  My conversion is complete, and I have fired with T7 powder.

Just got some BH209, will see how it holds up to the hype.

Thoughts on the conversion:

The flange of the primer slides into the end of the bolt.  Closing the bolt "swages" the primer into the breech plug.

Opening the bolt extracts the primer, and it just rolls out if you tip it, or it easily lifts out with fingers.

Well, I FINALLY shot my Rem 700ML with my conversion and BH209 powder.

100yards, 2 shots.  1 in X ring, 1 in 10 ring.  Smoke just as bad as T7, but no residue in barrel.

Recoil feels heavier than T7.

I    LIKE   it!

do you have a chronograph?  I would be interested if there is any gains in velocity.  I like the tighter breach, and less opportunity to foul the powder/primer with moisture.  still vulnerable, but not as vulnerable.  I am also just tagging along this thread so I can find it again in a year or two.
