I've had some for over 5 years & no problem. I think I read that it's similar to blackpowder...unlimited shelf life if maintained in a cool dry environment. Be a good question to fwd to BH company. I know 777 starts to lose potency after a few years.

I know water is no-no when using Blackhorn 209.

What is your preferred cleaning product?

At range and field for quick swab....Windex w/Vinegar works great(has no ammonia). Storage....same solvents as used on smokreless powder(Hoppes etc).

Water makes it turn to a tar like mess which is hard to clean up.
Probably why Windex works good. Back when I shot 777 I also used Windex w/Vinegar for between full cleanings such as at the range & in field.

Loggy, are you in need of any Blackhorn? I recall from a couple threads here that you aren't that far from me. I came across some on clearance for $15 jug and have no use for it as I only shoot flintlocks. I'd like to see it get a good home.😇
Pm me and I'll let you know where it is if you're interested.

been using original Windex for all my ML's for about 30 years and now use it for my BPCR's. it also works real well to run a damp patch thru the barrel between shots with the 40-70, 32-40 and the 25-20. good stuff!
