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 four 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.

Important: Please Read

Effective December 31, 2016, Richard Cady is stepping down as head of Shooting Standards and Safety. The Association will be replacing Richard with another individual to keep track of the annual scores of member shooters. Until the end of the year please keep sending sanction results to Richard.

​Dick has held this position for many years and feels he wants to give it up to someone else. Thanks to Dick for his dedicated service and the great job he has done. There was never a time when we felt the task was not being taken care of and Dick traveled many miles to quarterly meetings and various shooting events to keep us updated.

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 is asking that if any association members know of anyone who may have moved away or not updated this information, please contact Charlie Brown if you know of such a situation. The Badger State Quarterly will not be mailed to old addresses. See membership page
