PostSubject: My first powder horn attempt   January 31st 2018, 6:03 pm

Still in progress, tomorrow I will look at fitting the horn stopper into place. I got tired of spilling that black gold, So i used a 3006 case, cut it down, drilled and epoxied it into the horn for a handy funnel to put the powder where I want it. The horn tip will slide over the case and be the stopper. Found this antelope horn many many years ago out on the plains. Never seen one before and found out they are harder to find because they are made of hair and fall apart after a while. I plan on rubbing in some boiled linseed oil. Most likely going to use it for rendezvous as it is a big large and bulky, but still pretty hard cool. I've never seen someone use a speed goat horn before!

End cap is oak. That crap is worse than shaping steel!

It is pretty cool!  Good conversation piece. Everyone will want to look at it at the rendezvous.

Can't you polish the horn so it's not so rough? I have several pronghorn mounts and their horns aren't as rough and dried out as yours. They're still black and relatively smooth.

highly doubt it since it is hair. I plan on adding some tung oil.

Way cool!!! Never saw anything quite like that. If you decide to, I think there would be a market for those.
Oh, being in the horn hobby...I get that "Hair" reference. Most folks don't know that horn is actually hair? I believe that deer are the exception, since that's solidified calcium NOT horn!?
