Muzzleloading is an interactive discipline that caters to the original and replica rifles, muskets, handguns and shotguns that were used during Australia’s colonial days. Each firearm category has its own classes and subsections. The rifle events are shot from the offhand, cross-sticks/prone, benchrest or kneeling/sitting positions, while shotgun events are shot around stations placed various distances from the thrower. Muzzleloading shooters often take part in historical events and re-enactments. During these re-enactments, the muzzleloading enthusiasts replicate the dress and equipment of the period of interest.
