Blackhorn™ 209 Muzzleloader Powder Substitute is a high performance, low residue propellant engineered for modern Inline Muzzleloaders with 209 primer ignition systems. Produced by Western Powders, this revolutionary, powder substitute shoots consistently, producing higher velocities and greater accuracy than other propellants. In addition, Blackhorn™ 209 is the only non-corrosive, muzzleloading powder on the market today that remains unaffected by temperature and humidity, sharply reducing misfires and hang-fires.
Blackhorn’s™ high performance, Muzzleloading Powder can be used with any standard 209 shotshell primer. The powder leaves no curd ring in the barrel, and can be readily cleaned with regular oil-based solvents. Because of its non-corrosive nature, there is minimal fouling, so the need to swab between shots is eliminated, resulting in increased time in the field.
