Supposedly its non-corrosive. Which is why I'm real interested. Has anyone tried it?

I am using blackhorn 209.
It is accurate in my TC omega. No cleaning between shots. Clean up is alot easier. I have even waited a day or so before cleaning it and managed to get the gun clean.
I love it. It is expensive but good stuff. Very hot too.
Has anyone used this powder in a cva optima? I bought some and I'm having ignition trouble, I get hangfires and no fires. Sometimes the second primer will set it off, but once I had to pull the breech plug and empty the bore. That time I had to pull the breech plug I found the bullet and powder charge had been pushed up the bore about 2 inches but no boom, yes the load was seated in the first place. 100gr of BH209 and a hornady sabot, cci standard 209 primers, flash hole was clear every time. Do I need a magnum primer or to alter my breech plug? At this point I sure wouldn't trust it to hunt with, I'm using triple 7 for now, never had a bit of trouble with that. Thanks
They claim that you should not use magnum primers.
I have optima pro but never shot it in my cva. I have never had a misfire in my Omega. Shot a big 10 point with it this year...
