BAMM Match at Outlaw Trail
« on: August 14, 2014, 10:57:33 AM »

  The Wild Bunch Match Director at Outlaw Trail has sent out an email to all WB Shooters that the BAMM Match will be shot with lead bullets only.  Not to worry..........If you are not set up for lead bullets in you rifle I will have extra BAMM Rifles and lead bullets for any one who would like to shoot the Match.

Thanks Goatneck,
Hipshot will try to change the angle on some targets for the BAMM.  There is no guarantee he will be successful.  So Yes, if you can, bring lead.  I too will have my Krag and lead 30-40 lead rounds available for anyone to use.  With your rifles and others everyone who wants to shoot will be able to do so.

Are lead rounds required for all BAMM matches?
I recently acquired an 03-A3 but don't have any lead 30-06 rounds (yet).
I hope to be able to shoot some BAMM matches in the future.

The folks in Texas to date have required lead bullets.  For the side match at EOT this year Evil Roy brought some targets (Evil Roy of course) that were made of AR500 steel and have a head angle of 45 degrees.  So they allowed jacketed bullets because the targets would not be harmed.  For OT we have the AR500 targets but they have to be modified to a 45 degree angle.

To answer your question, it depends on the steel being shot.  You could shoot paper but there there is no target feed back.  So it depends on the range hosting the side match.  Get some lead bullets!

Got finished typing all that and found the BAMM rules Goatneck posted on the top of this forum.

I'll bring an extra 100 rounds of lead ammo for 8x57 Mauser, plus the rifle.

See you BAMM'ers there!

Good luck, GJ
