The Muzzle Loaders Association of Great Britain (MLAGB) was formed in 1952 and is the Governing Body for muzzle loading within the UK. Its objectives are to encourage an interest in muzzle loading firearms; to promote, regulate and safeguard their use; and to preserve their freedom of collection.
During the 1960s the MLAGB introduced long range muzzle loading into their calendar. This has now expanded into a series of National Rifle Championship Matches which for target rifle are fired at 200, 300, 500, 600, 900 and 1000 yards at Bisley, Surrey. For the military rifle enthusiast there are also National Rifle Championships for the muzzle loading Enfield, fired at 200, 300, 500 and 600 yards. More information from: www.mlagb.com
