Too lazy to inventory. Have a horn for each rifle , and one for the 16 Ga. Ped de Vachet musket. ( In French talk , Ped de Vachet means " Foot of the cow") Each has the appropriate black powder . Some Graf's , some Goex , no preference.

Only two of my horns have powder in them right now. Goex 2FF in one, 3FFF in the other. I have a few other horns but they aren't in use at the moment, one is getting a new strap made, another has a broken hanger to be replaced as well as a new strap and a couple are just stored away. I have several flasks as well, the ones with powder in them are mostly Goex as well though two have older Dupont in them and one still has the last of an old can of Meteor powder in it.
