Black Powder

Black Powder Cartridge Rifle is – as the name suggests – a series of competitions using the 19th century exposed-hammer American BPCR with open sights – or at least modern replicas from the likes of Pedersoli etc. It started with the now famous Billy Dixon Shoot which takes place annually at 1000 yards using paper targets and steels. In addition, there is a complete range of BPCR shoots at various distances demanding a variety of skills. Most competitions are shot off-hand or using crossed sticks for support.
