The CBA is a international organization of shooters who enjoy casting and shooting lead alloy
bullets for competition, hunting, experimenting, and casual shooting.
In the last three decades, experimentation with cast bullets, the
lubricant and alloys is producing accuracy at velocities up to 2700 fps. This rivals the speeds
of jacketed bullets for hunting and target applications. And what's more amazing, with these
modern techniques and lubricants, the loads can shoot groups
less than one-half minute of angle
(1/2 inch) with no lead fouling in the barrel!!
The CBA bi-monthly journal, The Fouling Shot,
an informative publication filled with articles on casting techniques, loading data and
techniques for cast bullets, the results of experiments with cast bullets, and both shoulder to
shoulder and postal match scores. These match results contain tables with detailed equipment
listings used by each competitor. These tables will help you understand the style of bullets, the
lubricants, the loads, the techniques, and the alloys being used
for hunting and in each class of competition.
The CBA conducts benchrest rifle, pistol and military matches at various locations as well as
global postal matches for both rifle and handgun. There are many classifications to allow everyone
to participate in their form of matches with their rifle or handgun. Shoulder-to-shoulder offhand
matches are "shoot the rifle you bring" competition. Benchrest matches have
many separate classifications:
Military benchrest matches have several separate classifications:
- Hunting Rifle
- Production Rifle
- Long Range Handgun
- Long Range Unrestricted Handgun
- Heavy Rifle
- Plain Base Bullet
- Issue Sights
- Modified Sights
- Modified Scope
- Big Bore
Postal matches include the all above classes plus add special classes for military
rifles, single shots, lever and pump action, and revolvers. The military rifle classes include a
separate match for original sights, modified iron sights, and scope sights. These matches allow
shooters to compete on their home range and send in the targets for scoring.
