I believe all the non-military classes will be the same as always.  Your '86 would be Militia, I believe.

Yep, the 1886 is a Militia class weapon, no change there.  This only affects Victorian Military Specification rifles.  Expansion era is unchanged.  Civilian classes are unchanged.

1886 is the Date the French introduced the Mle 1886 Lebel, the 1st Smokeless military rifle fielded. Nearly all military rifle designs subsequent to this were intended for the use of Smokeless/semi Smokeless powder.  There are a very few Transitional rifles from this period that will be handled on a case by case basis.  The early Mannlicher wedge locks come to mind.

So, will the rifles still be divided into single shot and repeater in their respective categories?

Bat, I'm sure you're only asking this question for clarification, because why the hell would someone who can successfully engage all the rifle targets, a(at rifle ranges) with a sidearm be concerned? It is wonderful to watch by the way!

No, the only division will be year and powder type.  But only for the Military Rifle classes.  All others are unchanged.   http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,17271.0.html

Hi

So, if I shoot 1911 handgunner in the Expansion era match, I can carry 80 rounds of 45 ACP because I get 60 rounds of rifle, and 20 rounds of pistol (all goes in the same 1911).  I could shoot a 1903 Springfield like Bat did in the long range portion of the match, but I don't have one.  What limitations on long range rifles would be in the expansion era match?

Yes, that is correct.  

Long range rifles use full power ammunition, you get 15 rounds, with 3 hits required on successive 100-200-300 yard targets each.  The rifle should be the same era as your Skirmish gun, if not the same gun.  In the expansion match, all guns are from the 1900-1916 time frame.  

 The Expansion era handgunner has an almost unlimited rifle selection, as long as he can reasonable justify its use with his persona.  The 1911's natural rifle would be the 1903.  But a battlefield pickup could be most any small ring mauser, or rolling block, both heavily used in the phillipines.  Marines in China in 1900 picked up "Commission" 1888 rifles.  An officer involved in the China Relief Expedition of 1900 (Boxer Rebellion) could possibly claim a rifle "acquired" from any of the nations involved!  A civilian "Fillibuster" persona could use a Winchester 30-30.  

The Boxer Rebellion is a treasure trove of weapon possibilities, and its 1900 date means it can be used for both the Victorian Main Match and the Expansion era match.

I've thought of passing as a Masters Mate off the SS Gussie, a well known gunrunner in Cuban Waters, wielding a Webley Top Break and a Mauser 91 bought in the weapons black market of Buenos Aires . . . In fact, come to think of it, I'll do exactly that for this weekends "Hi-wye-an floweredy shirt match" at my local SASS club (which has a military category just for us GAF types.)
