Every once in a very Great While, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn.

The Cherry Ridge club buffalo rifle match is at 200 yards, off cross sticks, at an NRA MR-63 target face.  Single shot rifles, or lever guns fired single shot, .38 and up rifle cartridges only.

I used a Pedersoli .45-70 Remington rolling block replica and paper patched bullet cartridges loaded with black powder.

Practice at the 200 yard range this past April - trial run of the BACO bore wipers.
