Ammunition Updates

The ammunition restrictions for Tuesday night have been changed as follows: Any open tip (hollow point) bullet loaded in straight pistol cases at standard velocities. Also, any cast lead bullet, any poly jacketed bullet, any 22 rimfire, any frangible bullet. 22 rimfire rifles are welcome.

Full metal (hardball) jacketed bullets are still prohibited as well as any magnum loads and all black powder firearms.

We hope to see you on Tuesday night.


As this is being read, trap should be in the 2nd full week of the BVCS Spring Trap League. No actual count of shooters can be given. Many wait until the 5-week grace period is near to get scores in for the league. In that sense, there is plenty of time to make a decision to apply yourselves to the sport of trap shooting. We hope to see many members during the season.

Thanks to the volunteers for taking the time to make our program successful & to the BVCS Board for their support.

Thanks: Trap person -
