blackhorn 209

Blackhorn 209 is a low residue, high performance propellant for muzzleloaders and black powder cartridges that consistently shoots at higher velocities and with greater accuracy than all other muzzleloader powders.

In fact, if you compare our benefits with other powders, you will quickly see that the powder absolutely smokes the competition.

Although the labels on the Blackhorn 209 containers has changed around a half dozen times over the last 10 1/2 years, the product is still the same. They were on Lot #30 back in April 2018 when the latest label showed up. There has been some minor VOLUME to WEIGHT conversion variances from one lot to another over the years, but I’ve heard that all production going forward from Lot #30 will be exactly the same converting VOLUME measurements to WEIGHT, using the 0.7 multiplier. This means that 100 grains by VOLUME will weigh exactly 70 grains by WEIGHT. Western Powders still recommends measuring Blackhorn 209 with a VOLUME MEASURE. If you WEIGH your powder, you better know what you are doing!

Designed for in-line muzzleloaders with a 209 primer ignition system. This powder creates high velocities and unbeatable accuracy. BlackHorn 209 is the only non-corrosive muzzleloading powder. It’s non-hygroscopic, meaning changes in the temperature or humidity will not affects its performance (reduces misfires), it can be cleaned with regular oil-based solvents and does not require any special primer. BlackHorn 209 powder uses standard 209 shotshell primers. Because it’s non-corrosive, the need to swab between shots has been eliminated, increasing the amount of time in the field.


  • Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide.
  • Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
  • Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute.
