My Range is 100 yards long. When ever I get the shooting porch built I can start shooting over the Levee, but will need to clear out some trees... Son in Law thinks we could open the shooting range out to 750 Yrds.... LOL!!!!  He has not tried to clear a shooting lane back there yet!!!!  I bet he will say to he!! with that after about clearing 100 Yrds !!  and that is if we could even get a straight line out that far with out having a Cypress tree in the way!!

I have some South African and some German 7.62x51 NATO rounds for my Ishy's  Im wondering how they would do up against each other !!

We live on what is known as the columbia platue,in north central wa state. is 2000 ft up from the columbia river. its either wheat,or sage brush. so there are some wide open spaces, to play with enfields, and to a lesser degree, [other rifles],pistols shotguns and a cannon on the 4th.friend built it, shoots a one pound ball with authority...but mostly enfields....

Cool!!! I have been wanting to go down the road to a friends property, since he has a road that goes almost all the way to the end of his properties!! right down the middle..His property is the same length as mine, 1/2 mile deep!!!
So when ever I get to the point I can shoot again with out pain. and he is home, Im going there to do some long shots!!!

Getting to shoot proper distances  (200 +) is a problem for me too. Closest is a 200 and 300 metre at 1 1/2 drive (each way) but only get space midweek if your not a member. Another 200 metre at 2 1/2 hours. There is a new site being developed for international competitions, with a 600 metre range, but it will be about 4 hours each way! and probably busy as he!!!

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I guess I'm pretty lucky.  I have a number of indoor rifle ranges that are very close, and a nice outdoor range facility about 1/2  hour away that goes up to 300 yards. 

Still, it would be awesome if I could just sit on the back porch and shoot targets!  Perhaps someday I will move out to Montana or the Dakotas, maybe even Texas.  But I would have to win the lottery first Cry
