answer 1
The 209A primers are formulated with Muzzle-loaders in mind.
The primer burns equally hot but burns a bit slower to assist in
maximum ignition. It also produces less "load shock" which can
effect accuracy.

answer 2
The 209A is a little hotter than the 209. You should back off a grain to 1.5 grains on your loads when using a 209A according to some reloading manuals. Consult the same for proper powder charges.

Federal 209 primers are like regular pistol or rifle primers but for shotshells. Federal 209A are like the Magnum primers.
