Gday,

I am a muzzleloader shooter on the North East coast of Australia. I have shot BP on and off for 20 odd years.

My shooting is a mix of rendezvous and club shoots. Finally I have acquired a decent quality rifle† and† will have fun trying to wear it out over the next 20 years.

I get a lot of enjoyment from making the accoutrements as well as just pulling a trigger.

Greetings to muzzle loader shooter friends† on this board.

Welcome aboard! WOW! Australia, that got to be a first for our forum lol. I'd sure love to hear and see some stories/pictures of the rendezvous you guys have down there. That would be something the members on here really get into. Or at least i do!

Thanks for the welcome,

If I read the FAQs correctly I can download photos from places like photo bucket.

I visited the local range for practice yesterday and believe† shot fairly well given it was 50metres and the wind blew strongly enough to blow light stuff like percussion cap tins from the bench. A real PITA.

Some may notice more than 10 shots. Just to clear it up its how we do it,† down under.
Comps out here shoot 13 shots and you drop the lowest 3 as sighters.

If you are† not too bored with seeing bullet holes in targets I† can post the pics of the targets for offhand and B'rest. for comment, in the general section
