Some thoughts on a new sport

<< < (4/4)


--- Quote from: Galloway on November 04, 2022, 11:58:37 AM ---Nothing wrong with long range bpcr but how about a more stripped down match anyone could participate in with an off the shelf rifle? Something with a theme closer to the hide men, getting a stand, and frontier hunting with a simplified but practical course of fire. Other sports like idpa, bowling pin shoots, cowboy fast draw made me think of this as they all stem from more elaborate disciplines.

A fun course of fire ive shot myself with barrel sights is 45 seconds par time for 3 shots total. One at 50 75 and 100 yards on a 10'' steel plate standing or kneeling. I think i did it on my 3rd try, under no pressure of course but if i can do it anyone can.

Other rules could be any bp cartridge with at least 70grs of powder. Shells held in offhand. Period dress, no spotters.

Rather than extreme accuracy this game would celebrate the killing power of the large bp cartridges that won the west and cleared the plains in faster and closer match anyone could play. Less Tom Selleck more Kansas railcar blasting.

Just some ideas i thought of as id love to attend a buffalo camp themed match with basic equipment myself.  Lets here your ideas any one else interested? What am i forgetting? What would be a good name?
Sounds like a great idea.... except for the part about sayin how much powder should be used. I would go with whatever is the most accurate load in my rifle.

Just found this old thread.    Drydock is correct, this is a close description to the KVC Buffalo Shoot, where Drydock distinguished himself.    We are planning it again for October.   Keep an eye on NCOWS board for announcements the closer we get.   

Here is the camp.

A good introductory book on history of buffalo hunting: " Getting a Stand" by Miles Gilbert.
