Making Brass Powder Measures...

I have several favorite poiwder horns and never found a way to affix a powder measure to the horn or the horn thong. I shot no deer, so cannot make an antler powder measure cap for each horn. I dumpster dove into the brass barrel at the local gun club and got lots of brass cases of various sizes. I hacksawed off the cases at the shoulder, filed each to the desired capacity and then campher and deburred the case mouths. I tied a thong to the case and affixed the thong to the possibles bags shoulder straps. I put a 70 grain 2F Goex measure in each bag, in case of future need.
