Can't find any rules for this in the SSAA Disciplines, is it called something other than BPCR?

Hi Bladeracer

It is in the Rifle Metallic Silhouette rulebook. Black Powder Cartridge Rifle, Scoped Black Powder Cartridge Rifle and Smallbore Black Powder Cartridge Rifle are what will be shot on the weekend in question. Please note however that the Scoped BPCR match is open to open sight BPCR rifles as well so could really be considered an any sight match.

I’m in! Had a great time last year and have been looking forward to it - just don’t bring the roaring gale with you this year!
There's still a few of Wile. E Coyote's ideas that I haven't tried yet.

What roaring gale??
I recall a slight breeze :lol:
At the Nationals at Berridale a few years ago I had run out of windage adjustment and had to hold off by two animals to hit the one I needed, that's a gale.
