Black Powder Silhouette

One of the fastest growing shooting sports is Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Silhouette (BPCRS). In this sport, shooters use authentic or reproduction rifles to knock down four different steel silhouettes at four different ranges. The sport was organized in 1985 by shooters who recognized the great interest in the U.S. in the black powder cartridge rifles of the era preceding 1896. BPCRS harkens back to this time, a time of big-bore, single shot rifles, a time of long-range target shooting and buffalo hunting.
