but my type of competition is somewhat different than most that visit here.
I shoot Black Powder Cartridge Rifle matches. Most rifles resemble the "buffalo rifles" of days gone by.
The cartridges are loaded with Goex or Swiss brand black powder and the bullet is cast from lead alloy.
The sights are "open" sights, no scopes in most of the matches, and the target distances vary form 200 yards to as far as 1 mile
On windy days, it's a real challenge just to get on the targets
Just another way to have fun
