Default Something Other Than Coverstain

We use Cover Stain on new interior trim & doors (usually clear pine, mdf, and poplar). It's great but we end up sanding through it pretty easily even with 220/320. Would like a harder primer but probably won't be buying FPE's oil undercoater at $175/gal.

Any other suggestions for a brushable, oil primer that sands well? Thank You.

Why oil?
Have you tried bm 217 alkyd undercoater? Don't know if it's changed but it was the Cadillac of primers.
I think the Bm Advance is nice as far as oils go. Love the cleanup. Sands well once fully dry.

BM 094 oil is what we use day in and day out. Great stain blocking, dries in roughly 4-5 hrs.

Zinzer gold label is also another good one.

My Ben Moore supplier just started carrying their Fresh Start primer in oil. Haven't used it yet, but plan to try it.

Good stuff. When we can't get 094 we grab this instead.
