Primitive Black Powder Range

The Wilderness (Black Powder) Range encourages the use of traditional muzzle loaders and antique cartridge firearms, either original or reproductions, designed for cartridges in use before the advent of smokeless powder and prior to 1893. Guns used in Cowboy Action Shooting, .22, .22 Magnum or .17 caliber rifle or handguns are not permitted on the BP Range

Targets are set at 25, 50 and 100 yards and steel gongs are set at 25, 50 and 130 yards.

Many of the shooters on the Primitive Black Powder Range are members of the National Muzzleloading Rifle Association (NMLRA), The North South Shooters Association (NSSA) and the American Civil War Shooting Association (ACWSA). These associations sponsor various shoots and Rendezvous each year.

Watch for future events in the CCKC Bristol Ranges Newsletter or Announcements and Calendar.

Skirmish Field

The Skirmish Field is used by Civil War enthusiasts for skirmish re-enactments. Special black powder competitions and cowboy action shooting matches are also held there. The Skirmish Field has a target backstop 280 feet long.
