Re: Powder Horns
I have a horn that was my dad's before I existed, and then I bought a small, flat priming horn at Lewisburg to put in my bag.
I'll never get rid of Dad's horn, but I do think I will at some point get a horn from Art DeCamp to compliment my rifle.
I also use RMS speed tubes in my bag. I carry two pre-measured charges in the rubbery, capped vials/tubes you can get from RMS (Dixon sells them, that's where I got them), and two patched balls on a block. Those are for potential issues of an errant shot that wounds but doesn't dispatch a deer where a reload is an urgent matter.
Otherwise, if time is not critical, I'll pour from the horn and load from pre-lubed patches I keep in my bag and from loose round balls I have in a shot pouch in my bag. I find it slows me down after a shot to have to focus more on what I'm doing.
