In a typical Cowboy Action Match I use 60 rifle rounds, 60 pistol rounds and at least 24 shotgun rounds. For me, purchasing factory shotgun, pistol and rifle ammunition is prohibitively expensive particulary when it comes to using black powder cartridges and shotgun shells. So, I successfully looked for ways to mitigate the expense of black powder ammunition. The following video shows how you can reload plastic 12 gauge shotgun shells for Cowboy Action Shooting. At the end of the video there are a couple of short clips showing how well these loads work. The recoil is mild and the smoke is great!
When I was a kid I was always in a hurry to move on to the next great adventure. It was always the next cap gun or a new bicycle or a new model airplane. As I look back I realize that in my haste to move on I missed some things. Through a series of unfortunate events I was forced to slow down a few years ago. It was through adversity that I began to understand that making the journey without stopping along the way was foolish.
So I slowed the pace of my life and discovered a number remarkable things and many special people. The founding of Arkansas Shooters, as unlikely as it may seem, was a catalyst which opened doors. One of those doors was to the world of Cowboy Action Shooting and the Arkansas Lead Slingers of Frisco City, Arkansas. If that sounds a bit silly to you, you need to slow down. Come on out and join us in making smoke, making friends and having a great time. Who knows? You may just feel like a kid again.
