Has anyone tried using kerosene to clean black powder? is there any reason I shouldn't try it? Thanks

You'll still need the water to flush out the corrosive salts. Kerosene is used in a lot of cleaners for removing carbon and copper fouling, so it wouldnt hurt to use it as a follow up to remove any left over moisture/fouling that may still be lurking.
