One way to support muzzle loading is to join the 
"National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association"

Welcome to the Wisconsin Muzzle Loading Association
The association was started in 1982 by a dedicated group of individuals who envisioned a need to keep the black powder tradition alive. Thirty five years later the association is still going strong and groups through out the state gather to shoot matches or celebrate the traditions of the rendevous.

If you are a member, thank you for your support. If you are not, come out and join us at an event or better yet become a member. We are always happy to see new faces.

Membership page for contact information and a membership form.

Please consider becoming a member or keeping up your membership,
the association can use you.

​​​ Upcoming Events​ 

​          Apr 28       Coon Valley ML, Silhouette Muzzleloader shoot, starts 1:00 pm

The spring annual meeting and Phil Siehr Memorial 3-man team shoot was held on April 21st, 2018. See the Shooting Page for details about the shoot.

There are a number of instances where members of the association do not have up to date contact information. This is often with life members.  The chairman of the membership committee, Charlie Brown, is asking that if any association members know of anyone who may have moved away or not updated this information, please contact him. A Badger State Quarterly, that has been returned as undeliverable, will not be mailed again to an old address. See membership page
