    Thunder Gun Range outside of Conroe. They have a 300 yrd range. That is the best I have to offer. I go there to pratice and go to a spot in the national forest to get to 500. Hope that helps.

    Search for Bayou Rifles or Bayou Rifle Club. It's on County Rd 57, between Rosharon and Houston. No more than 20 miles south of Houston. I used to shoot there, but haven't been on the range in yrs. I've heard that they have a 1000 yd range now.

    About 45 miles south of Houston on FM 521 just north of Brazoria is Greenwood Gun Club. We have rifle ranges up to 600 yds.

    I shoot at Bayou rifles range south of highway 6 off 288. They have 100,200 and 300 open to any member. Then they go out to 1000 yards but you have to qualify. Basicly they want to make sure you and your gun can get that far out. Also no 50 bmg or 338 L.M. Great range, usally pretty quiet.

    Took my own advice and got on their website. Easy to find, and very well laid out, but you must have to be a member to access range rules. Specifically, if they bar the .338 LM, I expect the ban includes all of the big .338's, and maybe even the smaller ones? I would like to shoot a Wby .338 x .378 at 1K, but can't afford to drive to Mineral Wells or Raton just to scratch that itch. I don't think civilians can shoot at Bullis anymore.

    Wattsdk, thanks for the info.

    Squeeze don't jerk, If I didn't have Greenwood, I'd join Bayou. It's about a 70 mile round trip, but I could do it once in a while.

    That sucks about not being able to shoot .338 LM. I am having one built for me as we speak but thank yall for giving me some places to look at shooting.

    I should have mentioned that Greenwood bans .50 Browning rifles. We can shoot any of the .338's though, but only out to 600 yds.
