Trap,

Trap,
A group of us from Tejas will be coming in Thursday evening.  It will be me and Pappy from the coastal plains, and Blue Bonnet, Gut shot, Close shave and another from the Dallas area.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!

 Will this be a blanket shoot?  One big bore and one 22?

As long as it's nailed to the broad side of a barn.

I can't come (this year at least) but I'm curious about the course of fire, allowed firearms, etc.

None of that new fangled smokeyless powder allowed Ned.  All the Big Shaggies were pretty much exterminated by the time it came around.

I figured that.  I've got the equipment to load black powder .50-70 loads.  A shoot like that may be worth using it!  What are the distances, etc.?

Ned, you need 30 rounds.  Targets are 15 third scale steel bison scattered between 100-300 yards.  You get 15 shots to knock them down.  Then everyone moves back 75 yards or so and try again.  The 50-70 is excellent for this.  No sighters, no posted range.  Guess your settings and shoot.  I set for 200, started on the near ones holding low, then held higher as I moved back thru the herd.

Big bore single shots.  I don't think BP is mandatory, but it does give best performance for the conditions.  Them things weigh 60+ lbs, ya gotta load heavy!  I'd say a 45-70-405 is marginal/minimum with 500 grains far better on the critters.  They have to go down.  Pretty much everybody shot seated off cross sticks.

It's a slow paced, one guy at a time event.  Bring a chair, binoculars, a canteen, and good conversation.  A fine way to spend a day!

That sounds like fun!  I would think my '68 Springfield would be good for that.  It's good to at least 300, and quite accurate.  I'll have to start working up some loads.
