Match Regulations
The general rules for international black powder competition are pretty simple. All firearms must be either original, or replicas of original arms in the spirit of the original. Changes that do not improve performance, such as a stainless steel barrel, are acceptable. Changes that do improve performance, such as glass bedding, are strictly prohibited.

For rifle and pistol events, the course of fire is 13 shots on the appropriate target (B-17 International Precision Pistol target, except for smoothbore) in 30 minutes. No sighter rounds are fired, but the lowest-scoring three shots are dropped from the scoring.
