Re: 2012 Long Range Shoots in Townsend Montana

Update!!!! I spent all day at the range with a skidsteer clearing brush. The problem with seeing the 1000 yard gong from some benches is gone!! I pushed out trees and bushes like a mad man.

Plus I set up rocks at several locations for targets. Then I pushed up 3 more small berms for target backers to spot misses better. I am going early to set up and we will now have steel gongs at 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 750, 850 and 1000. Plus a set of 5 rocks diminishing in size at 620 yards. Also a big rock about 650 and another on top a wire spool at 700.

The range is rich with fresh targets and has never looked better. It should be an awesome shoot!!!!!!!!

To any of you that have not attended one of these yet. There is no charge or need for membership for these shoots!!!!!

They are free for anyone that want to join in. We do have a short safety meeting before the shoot and go over a few things. If after the shoot you decide you want to join the club and get a key to the range that is totally up to you. But that is not why I put these on. I do it to promote Long Range Shooting and meet some great people with like interests.

Thanks
Jeff

Re: 2012 Long Range Shoots in Townsend Montana

We had a great shoot last Saturday with 12 shooters total. The range was working great with all the brush cleared. The rocks were fun to shoot and the backstops I pushed up for the gongs at 600, 750 and 850 made spotting misses a breeze and really helped with getting dialed in. It was great to meet some new shooters. Those boys from Billings really brought some nice sticks.

Montana Marine was there with his .308 and put 3 consecutive hits on a 1 moa rock at 1003 yards and get this, all with a 10 X scope!!

Here are a few pics.

The cleared range.




A few of the line

Re: 2012 Long Range Shoots in Townsend Montana

The animal target shoot was really fun. We each took 2 shots at each of 3 targets. The fox at 614 yards, the antelope at 775 and the deer at 840. Fox is life sized, the antelope has a 10" vital circle of AR500 and the deer has a12". Any hit on the fox counted, but you had to ring the steel on the antelope and deer for it to count. No sighters, just range them, use your best dope and shoot.

Two shooters tied for first with 4 out of 6 hits. Pretty darn good shooting with a strong mirage and a variable wind from 6mph to nothing.


Left with the antelope is John Steab and rightis Jason Townsley.

Good job guys!!

Thanks to all for coming!!
