Deer Antler Powder Measure, .60 Grain

This is a handmade powder measure, made from a shed deer antler point. It will hold .60 grains of black powder. It would be useful for a number of different muzzleloader/blackpowder arms. Traditionally, a fixed measure (such as this one) would be used to pour out the proper amount of powder from the powder horn, and then from the measure load the correct charge for the firelock in use.

It has been carved and decorated with scrimshaw engraving, in a style similar to examples used prior to and during the American Revolution. The measure has been treated with pitch and beeswax to preserve it, and a hemp hanging cord is included to hang it from a shooting bag, or from a button on a jacket etc.
