Updated September 5, 2016

 

Matches temporarily suspended due to lack of participation.

 

The matches are scheduled for the first Sunday of each month but check the activity calendar here for the current month.


We use black powder cartridge rifles with black powder and soft lead bullets. In general we follow the NRA rules for BPCR Silhouette. Our longest range is 200 yards so all targets are shot at 200 yards and our longer range targets are scaled down for the distance. There are two classes, one for open sights and one for scope sights. The match consists of 40 shots for score, 10 at each animal. The chickens are shot standing off hand and the remaining targets are shot prone or sitting from cross sticks. Awards given for class B through master shooter scores, match winner, youth, and high woman.


You will need between 50 and 60 rounds of ammunition and standard safety gear for eye and ear protection. The match fee is $10 and sign in starts at 9:00 AM on match day. Coffee and snacks available as well as lunch for a donation to pay for food. Depending on the number of shooters we are usually done by 2:30 to 3:00 PM. Bring your rifle and have some fun!!
