In 2011, NDOW board of Commissioners voted to not allow Blackhorn 209 powder during muzzleloader season. This decision was based on uneducated facts about the powder. They were told it is a smokeless powder which it is not. It has the same classification as other blackpowder substitutes by the United States and United Nations (UN0499) where a smokeless powder carries a designation of UN0161.

Recently there has been a petition submitted to ndow to legalize Blackhorn 209 powder and now we need your help! Please email your support to the following. I am collecting these emails and submitting them to the NDOW board of Commissioners during the December meeting in Reno, NV.
