Dear Shooters, Collectors, Firearm Enthusiasts all over the World,

We are proud to see that many great shoo ters from all over the World chose our guns to compete on the 24th MLAIC World C hampionships in Barcelos. Our greatest reward for our work is to see our shooters on t he podium. But let's not forget that winning a World Championships medal is not only dependant on the firearm. It is essential to h a ve the best you can , but the human behind t he gun is the key factor. We do our best to supply the best muzzleloaders available on t he market, but the rest is up to those rugged women and men who use it.

We are proud to celebrate 50 medals won w ith Davide Pedersoli guns this year. With t his issue of our magazine we would like to c ongratulate all Pedersoli shooters on the World Championships, and all over the World.

I had some criticism regarding my development of hunting­level loads for this pistol. Even though I had indications from the proof marks that my loads were safe, I proceeded very cautiously and would suggest that others do the same. Every P edersoli barrel undergoes proof testing, but this does not apply to all muzzleloading barrels. A balance must be maintained between ignition sources, powder charges, granulat ions, types of powders, bullet design and bullet weight. Changes in any of these components can adversely increase pressures.

Interview with David Minshall, member of the MLAIC Long Range Sub­Committee

BPNo1: What rifle do you use?

BPNo1: Do you also let other rifles compete (Springfield, Mauser, Zouave, etc )?

BPNo1: What is your favourite load for your rifle (powder, bullet, caps, etc )?

BPNo1: What was your greatest achievement?

BPNo1: Do you see a chance that long range military rifle shooting is going to be part of the MLAIC international program?

BPNo1: Thank you very much David, we wish you many successes in the future both with free rifle and military rifle.
