    No, no need for that. You can if you wish, but I have never seen it.

    Could you use an 1894CB 357mag 24" for both the Cowboy Lever Action and the Pistol Cartridge courses? Have that firearm and either a 39A Century Ltd, or a Henry octagon barreled 22 for the smallbore course. Just not sure if I need to buy a third firearm for the centerfire "rifle" course... That make any sense?

    If so, what is usually recommended as calibers? I've seen lots of 30-30 mentioned... Anything else?


    Thanks

    Hey there Kron - Either of your .22's will be fine for the small bore lever game. The .357 will work just fine for the rifle and pistol caliber matches too. I'd recommend a 180 grain bullet for the rifle side of things as the targets are out to 200 yards (rams). They will make the chickens really dance in the pistol caliber matches at 40 yards. I think adding a tang sight will give you the most all around general purpose sight, with the easiest of adjustment over all the course of fire (distances). As far as other rifle calibers, just about anything plays. Mostly I see 30-30, 38-55, and 45-70. I'm gonna shoot a match or two this year with my new 113 year old Marlin 1893 in 32-40. Hope this helps. Best regards. Wind

    Go shoot. Take your guns as is. See what others are using, try some others gear. Then proceed. The main thing is go shoot and have fun, meet some good people. You'll start figuring out what is best for you.
