At a cursory glance, it looks legal in Modern.

Wild Bunch Rules Forum / Remington r1 use in modern as well
« Last post by lostvaquero on August 15, 2019, 08:35:28 PM »
Been eyeing a Remington R1S, yes I know but I like the high polish and pearl grips.  I doubt with my degrading wrists if I could do Traditional but wondering if could use in Modern.  I think the answer is yes but just make sure.

Cotton Gloves posted on Facebook that the High Country Cowboys in Wolf Laurel, NC are hosting a six stage “no rifle” Wild Bunch match in August 31.  168 pistol targets!  Looks like two stages with six shotgun.

I’ve marked my calendar!

Modifying the trigger guard on a pistol is NOT listed as an "allowable modification" so therefore it would be ILLEGAL.

I figured as much but had to ask, dang it!!!

Wild Bunch Rules Forum / Fitz'd 1911
« Last post by Joe Burr on August 13, 2019, 03:12:09 PM »
I am currently shooting a USGI 1911A1 in the Modern Category. I've looked over the rules and wanted to get some input here, would a "Fitz'd" modified trigger guard be allowed? In other words, can the trigger guard be removed from the frame and the pistol still be legal for Wild Bunch? I can't see any competitive advantage that could come from such a modification nor could I see a safety issue given that all the guns are carried without a round in the chamber. so it being holstered without a trigger guard doesn't pose an issue. Given all other handling requirements are followed I couldn't see any other issues either. From my my viewpoint the modification would be strictly cosmetic, maybe not appealing to everyone but it has some appeal to me anyway. Thoughts?

Usually if a powder is good in the .30-06, it works fine for .303 British loads too.   

The range of powders published in the Lyman Cast Bullet loading manual run:
Unique - although it's a little fast for the good 1600-1800 FPS load that usually works well in BAMM competition - but great for plinking
2400
4227
5744  - most accurate in Lyman's testing
4198

And, would not be surprised if you are able to figure out a load with Trail Boss, Reloder 7, Varget or 2230, as well.   Don't know that I would go to a slower powder than that last one.  Not until you get some experience with what your gun likes to shoot.

The .303 is very easy to load for, IF you have a bullet that matches the widely-varying groove diameters in the barrels.  Slug yours to find out.

Good luck, GJ

I saw on a previous thread that the Purcella bullets are favored.
Which powder is good to try in the .303 Enfield for BAMM with the gas checked lead bullets?
