Great place, 600M ranges always impress me.  I'm 80 miles from the nearest one though less than four to a 200M ranges.  Table Top does make for an interesting background.

Very challenging range when our summer wind blows. Can get up to 60-75Kmh.

LOL!!!!  it would be great to have a long distance range like that...
I have my own 100 yrd range on my property ...but with the protection levee I cant make it longer .... unless I would set up on the top of the levee and shoot into the cypress swamp behind me ...but thats way to much work clearing out a path to shoot down back there and keeping it clean ........

Shamu , right now I have tires filled with sand and I have the cypress swamp right behind the protection levee ..... one of the reasons I love living back here ..... no one behind me for a long way ...mostly cypress and tupilo trees in the swamp ...if a bullet goes beyond my back stop of tires it has to many trees to hit to go any place unwanted ... my property is a half mile deep from the road back, so we should have no one move behind us at all ..... and the last person to gripe about my shooting has moved away ..the only ones who now complain are renters and I dont even give them the time of day ,unless its to tell them to cut their grass and keep their stuff off my property .....kinda like leaving tree limbs and other junk on my side of the property line , had to get on the guy one time when my daughter cut the grass up front and had to cut around some limbs he pushed on our side ...he told her to put them in the burn pile ..kinda ticked me off , had to tell him where he stood in my books !!!
