Wondering what BPCR means? It is the acronym for Black Powder Cartridge Rifles. Yes, we shoot old buffalo guns here at Spokane Rifle Club.

Black powder target rifles are single-shot, breech loaded cartridge rifles that shoot lead projectiles propelled by black powder or black powder substitute. No smokeless powder in any quantity may be used. No gas checks are allowed.

Any metallic sights that are period correct, pre-1896, are allowed. No optics other than sight corrected shooting glasses permitted.

Period correct scopes are allowed with a tube body diameter of 3/4″ or less and objective lens ring no larger than 1″ in diameter. Mounts must also be period correct with windage and elevation adjustments incorporated into the mounts. No internal scope adjustments for windage or elevation are allowed. No click adjustments are allowed.

BPCR practice takes place on Thursday afternoons at 2pm and the division’s match schedule is posted under the calendar tab above.

The Bruce Thompson Memorial match will be held on the first Sunday in September at Spokane Rifle Club.  For the match, participants will shoot 40 rounds with two 10 shot strings at 600 yards, followed by two 10 shot strings at 300 yards.  Four sighter shots will be allowed before each string.
