Be very careful of leaving powder horns, powder cans and flasks on the shooting bench. 

A gent on another forum was injured when his powder horn blew up as he fired a round.  He says the horn was plugged but may have had a split in the horn.

My shooting table is 4 ft behind the firing line so the powder is always out of the way when I'm shooting.
