About CFDA Management
Ammunition: Wax Bullets Only! .45 colt, is the only caliber allowed in Cowboy Fast Draw. This is for three reasons: #1. At major contests, the host supplies all of the ammunition and there is no way to accommodate multiple calibers. #2. Wax bullets are very light and smaller calibers would increase velocities significantly, which would create a competitive advantage. #3. Historically, the Colt Peacemaker was introduced in .45 colt and that is what our sport is based upon.
Guns: STOCK .45 caliber single actions with minimum barrel length of 4.5″, with no external alterations other than smoothing the hammer knurling. No aluminum barrels or cylinders. Front sights are optional. Actions jobs that do not alter the factory-designed external operation of the six-gun are fine.
