Ammo & Reloading
Ammo is a whole world of it's own. Each
area of Cowboy Action Shooting uses it's own form of ammo - action shooters
shoot lead, mounted shooters shoot wax, and re enactors shoot blanks.
SASS has specific requirements for ammunition for competition shooting. A few
important things to keep in mind when buying or reloading your own ammo are:
•All ammunition used in smokeless categories must have not less than a power
factor of 60 with velocity between 400 fps and 1000 fps for pistols, 400 fps
and 1400 fps for rifles.
•Revolver and rifle ammunition must be all
•Shotgun shot size must be number 4 birdshot
or smaller, lead only.
The full set of requirements can be found
in the Shooter's Handbook at the official SASS website.
