2017 41st National Tournament

2017 41st National Tournament

In September the Cast Bullet Association will be holding its 41st National Tournament.  This is the beginning of another decade of shooters proving that cast bullets shoot as well, if not better, than jacketed bullets.  Our shooters take the time and effort to cast the “perfect” bullet that will shoot the smallest groups at both 100 and 200 yards and shoot the best scores at the same yardages. The 41st National will take place this year over the weekend of September 9th & 10th at the Pioneer Gun Club, near Kansas City, Missouri.  We actually will be there from Thursday September 7th through Sunday September 10th.  On Thursday and Friday, before the actual match we will host a military match, an Offhand Match and a Quarter-Bore Match.


These are fun matches that are also awarded medals at the award ceremony on Sunday.   Please note on the National Tournament Application that the Military Rifle Match is not listed, this is handled separately from the Tournament and you pay the entry when you sign up for it. 

Pioneer Gun Club hosted last year’s Nationals and has hosted several in the past.  They provide us with an excellent scoring team and target setters/retrievers teams.  A catered dinner is available on Saturday night and has always been a favorite with our members.  You must sign up for this meal in advance, so the cater supplier knows how many persons to serve.  Lunch is also available over the weekend at a reasonable cost. 

Pioneer has several electrical hookups for motorhomes, but does not have a sewage disposable.  There is also plenty of room for tents and other shelters.  The clubhouse has restrooms equipped with showers (bring your own soap and towels) for both men and women. There is also a small kitchen with oven and microwave for use. 

Their main rifle range is 100 and 200 yards with a moving backer system for national records in groups.  Several have been set here in the past. The range is covered and equipped with a concrete pad and benches.  If you look at our CBA Web Page in the “Gallery” at the 2016 Nationals the pictures on it are actually taken at Pioneer, so you get the idea of the benches and range.  There is also another 100 yard range available to us for other matches and practice, which you can do on Thursday or Friday when they are not being used for a match.  

One thing that no one has control over is weather so bring clothes for all occasions. We suggest you make a “check list” early so you don’t forget any of your gear, it’s hard to run home and get it.  Also many shooters bring “stuff” they want to sell.  There is a covered patio that many set-up and sell their unneeded firearm items.   

The most important item you can bring is an expectation to have fun and enjoy a great National Tournament!  SEE YOU THERE!
