There will be two classes of competitions: revolver and semi-auto.

 

 

You may choose revolver, semi-auto, or both. A prize will be presented to the best shooter in each of these two competitions.

No problem with semi-auto, but would I be able to also do revolver with a cap & ball (takes time to load)?

Hello a1rstreamer,

 

I’m not sure what a revolver with a cap and ball is. Can you expand on that more for me, please?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi Lisa,

 

I have a replica of an 1858 Remington New Army Service made by Pietta - see 

 

http://www.taylorsfi...lver-parts.html

 

for the design. 

 

See:

 

Instead of having cartridges (some refer to as bullets), it is hand-loaded by measuring the powder and dropping it into the cylinder, followed by a felt wad, which is tamped down, followed by a lead ball, which is also tamped down. Then the primers, which are caps that fit over a steel nipple are pushed on and the entire cylinder is put back into the frame - - then it is ready to fire. It can take 15 minutes just to load the 6 rounds.
