Powder horns, most commonly used with eighteenth century muskets, were used to carry gunpowder. These powder horns were generally crafted from a cow or buffalo horn, along with nonferrous metal parts (such as brass) to ensure that the powder would not be accidentally detonated by sparks during storage and loading. Horn is naturally waterproof and already hollow inside, so it made the perfect choice from readily available material.
