My 1874 Sharps 45/110
Montana Black Powder Cartridge Rifle

If you have information on a shoot you would like me to post or general comments about this site, please send email to:\

Weather for the weekend was nice spring weather, calm in the morning but with increasing winds through the day. Saturday saw a short lived spring rainstorm go through that spit a bit of rain and caused difficulties on the 600 yard line. Attendance was light. There was a mix of rifles for Saturday where BPCR rifles were used (scope and iron sights) as well as a few military sniper rifles. On Sunday there was one shoot-out for the pig pot that was shot between Howard and Heather. After several missed opportunities by both, Howard managed to edge Heather out by John Deereing his pig!
