Black Powder 50M
The 50m Black Powder event is based on the ISSF 50m Pistol match reduced to 40 shots:
|Calibre:||maximum ·46 calibre, cap and ball|
|Number of shots/time:||40 shots in four series of 10 shots, each series is 30 minutes|
|Target:||PA Black Powder Target|
The 13-shot events
The 13-shot events provide a 13-shot event for virtually every type of black powder ‘cap and ball’ pistols.
Although this is an event of 13 shots, only the ten best scoring shots are counted for the shooter’s score.
There are four suggested ‘categories’: Replica single-shot, Fixed-sight revolver, Adjustable-sight revolver, and Modern single-shot pistol.
PA Affiliates may add further categories, but pistols must be black powder:
|Number of shots/time:||13 shots in 30 minutes|
|Target:||ISSF 25/50m Precision Target|
This target is 55cm by 55cm and is at a distance of 50m.
