Upcoming events that have been canceled may be re-scheduled at a later date.

Please check back to see what may be happening as things unfold within the state and country.


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 seven 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.


See 
Membership page for contact information and a membership form.


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

​Abridged minutes for the January 25th, 2020 quarterly meeting are posted on the President"s page.

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


The WMLA has representatives throughout the state. If there are any questions about the association or black powder shooting please feel free to contact one of these reps.

 WMLA Demonstration Presentation Application

Over the past months there has been several requests to the WMLA to do demonstrations. As an organization we want to provide these but under certain conditions due mostly to timing constraints we are unable to take these tasks on. Therefore in the future we are asking groups to fill out a request form and present it to us. Following is a printable copy of this form with information on where to send it. We deeply appreciate these requests and want to keep the spirit of muzzle loading alive.
