Black Powder 50M

The 50m Black Powder event is based on the ISSF 50m Pistol match reduced to 40 shots:

Distance: 50 metres
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:

Distance: 25 metres
Number of shots/time: 13 shots in 30 minutes
Target: ISSF 25/50m Precision Target
