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.

When compared with volume equivalents, Blackhorn™ 209 is ballistically superior to other muzzleloading propellants. This powder substitute claims the industry's lowest standard deviations and low pressure-to-velocity ratio for precise performance every time. Blackhorn™ 209 is recommended for high-performance Muzzleloaders with 209 primer ignition systems where the primer is totally enclosed. This powder substitute is not for use with any special Muzzleloading primers, #11, musket or high-powered Rifle primers or Sidelock Muzzleloaders.

 Blackhorn™ 209 Muzzleloading Powder is arguably the best and most efficient  black powder substitute. The powder not only results in higher velocities and better accuracy, but burns clean with minimal residue, plus produces consistent fps and cleans up easily.  Powder comes in convenient 10 oz. or 5 lbs. bottle. What more could you ask for? The Blackhorn™ 209 Powder Substitute is everything it says it is and then some.

  1. Very low review by Kevin Wheeler on 12/20/2019

    "I've used 777 loose for years. I read reviews on the Blackhorn 209 thought I'd give it a try.
    I found it to be very dirty and had hang fires and misfires in 2 different muzzleloader's.
    I swabbed the barrel after just 1 shot and it was dirtier than the old pyrodex pellets and had that rotten egg smell
    Needless to say I'm going back to 777, I've never had a misfire or hang fire with it."

  2. BH 209 in T/C Pro Hunter review by Gator on 12/6/2017

    "Tried every powder known to man then this came along took my hornady sst 250 bullet with 100 grains of 209 out of a tc pro hunter 50 cal and put 5 shots all on top of each other one big clover leaf can't get any better powder for your muzzleloader cleaning and accurate!"

  3. Great powder review by Jones on 11/18/2016

    "Did some shooting today with my t/c encore fx @ 100 yards I stacked three shots in one bullseye 91 grains of BH 209 with CCi primer an t/c 200 grain sabot awesome stuff . "

  4. Blackhorn Powder review by Barry Dove on 7/3/2016

    "Relatively new to MLing....two years. Just about gave up trying to sight in a CVA with all the fuss with gunk, swabbing, etc. Missed three deer the first season < 70yard then a guy suggested BH209 and Precision Rifle Dead Center .44 260gn sabots ... and even some starting loads. Now it's a 100yd tack driver...killed both deer I shot at last season 40 and 98 yards with heart shots....and clean up is only slightly worse than a regular rifle."

  5. 2000 FPS review by John A. on 6/28/2016

    "I was able to reach 2000 fps with my T/C Triumph 50 Cal using Barnes 250 gr. Spit-Fire T-EZ Bullets (Winchester 209 Shotshell Primer). Hoppes No.9 works great for bore cleaning. I let my rifle go three weeks after my last range session without a cleaning. A bore brushing and some patches and it was spotless again - no corrosion at all!"

  6. Good Stuff! review by James K. on 6/28/2016

    "I have used this product for several years from 80 degrees to minus 20 and have always had great ignition using Winchester 209 primers. Very low fouling residue (no crud ring) and great velocity. Have tried it with Barnes TMZ's and Hornady conicals with great accuracy 1-2" groups at 100 yards with open sights. Cleans up easily. Powder is very consistent, no misfires."

  7. Blackhorn 209 review by Tyler T. on 6/28/2016

    "If they quit making this, I will quit shooting my in-line. Truly a fantastic powder for a hunter or shooter who wants a cleaner rifle and less time worrying about corrosion. Bullet lands wherever my crosshairs are and gun is a breeze to clean after. Pet load for my T/C Impact is 110 grains under a 250 grain Barnes Spitfire.

    Believe the hype and try this out. Expensive, but just the 10 oz can will yield over 50 shots with 100 grain charges. Clean, accurate, and quite potent based on recoil and two dead deer."

  8. Corrosive! review by Thomas B. on 6/15/2016

    "I use blackhorn 209 for its ez clean up and clean burning. but it is not non corrosive. the fact is that it is very, very corrosive. I did a corrosive test with a cheap gun. my friends that gun is now history."

  9. Best stuff ever! review by Rob K. on 6/15/2016

    "Best stuff ever. Glad I made the change from Triple 7. Brought my groups in from 3 to 4 inches at 100 yards to less then an inch. Will not use anything else now. It really lived up to all the positive reviews. Try it and you'll love it."

  10. Works well and accurate / Clean review by G. Love on 6/15/2016

    "The best powder I have used for my TC Impact. Use 90grains below a factory second's Product #: 151908 250gr muzzleloading bullet with Harvester Muzzleloading 50 Caliber Crushed Rib Sabot for 45 Caliber Bullets"

  11. Great powder review by Robert on 6/10/2016

    "I almost gave up on this powder because I used the CCI Magnum primers and the Federal 209 prime that BH recommend. They will not work!! My friend and I tested all of the popular powders loose and pellets. I also tested many primers. I found that 90 gr of BH 209 and the Winchester blue box primers 300 aerolite bullet will get me a 3/4 group at 100 yards. The Winchester primer is the only primer that would ignite the BH209 . All the others would miss fire and have blow back most of the time. If you want clean accurate powered get the black horn 209. We have used this same setup on 4 CVA rifles with the same results.
