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