Black powder rifles and pistols, reloading black powder, and other information. The smoky stuff.

If you one of these weird drop-bolt thingies this might be just the place to be in August :-)

Sounds interesting, a couple of my M-H shoot quite well, and I have a very good M-E 303. They're a bit late jumping on the bandwagon though, we've been running a Martini Henry Trophy for nearly 25 years!! Almost won it once, learnt a lesson about lending rifles that day.

This is the NSWMLA, it's just being hosted at Rankins Springs by LERAA.
Yes, they're happy to loan Cadets but there is a lot of reluctance to loan the .577's, at least not to people that aren't familiar with them :-)

I loaned mine to my Mrs, she uses a Martini Enfield in our Zulu shoot, I was leading the board with one more shooter to go so I told her "Grab the MkIV, there's spare ammo" Bitch knocked me by a V, I got Silver. Don't lend ya rifle!
