As many of you know, we have been having shooting matches using our traditional muzzleloaders with patched round ball.

How many inline shooters here would like to see the same done for todays modern muzzleloader?

A determined distance will be set, projectiles will be unlimited, as will powders and scopes. I was thinking of a bench shoot, but with ONLY the forearm being able to be rested.

We shoot for the fun of the sport and bragging rights.

I'm a newbie, but I'd like to try.  My property won't tolerate a very long shot though.

Need to drag out the Remington 700 and check the scope if this event is going to happen.   Smile

I have purchased one from Knight Rifles. Their basic Wolverine was on sale for 299 and I went for it. This is back ordered and they say 4-6 weeks. So, I likely will miss this shoot.

This kind of stuff has not been my style. So, this is fairly new territory. Inline. Pellets and such. Synthetic. Scope with Black Powder. I have been having fun expanding my range lately.

Right now Im holding off on shooting matches. To many problems with targets, printing them out so they are  the same for everyone, etc. Just been a real hassle for us.

If we could put a crew together that's willing to come up with the official targets for the matches, set the rules and run it, that would ease the load on me and Buck a lot. I liked the matches but as I start  to hurt more and more over time, they really put a lot on me and I started to not like go out and shoot them.

I can add a new area to the Modern muzzleloader and Traditional muzzleloader section strictly for the shooting matches so theres no confusion on what target to shoot, etc. I think that might clear up some confusion we had in the past.
