Welcome to the United States International Muzzle Loading Team

The United States International Muzzle Loading Team (USIMLT) is a non-profit corporation created in 1976 to recruit the best shooters from our country’s muzzle loading community. The members of the U.S. Team are selected through a qualification process to compete in the Muzzle Loading Associations International Confederation (MLAIC) World Championship Events.

World Championships are scheduled every other year and a Zone Championship in the alternate year. Competition is extremely intense, reaching Olympic caliber. Perfect scores are shot occasionally, and new world records set at practically every World Championship event. It is indeed a great achievement to stand on the awards platform among the best black powder marksmen in the world and hear the anthem of one’s country played.
