Our local range uses regular old sand you can buy for really cheap from any sand & materials place.

Try swimming pool filter sand. It's clean and fine. Not too expensive at True Value or Lowes.

Builders sand for construction is course and works well in sand bags (The fine sugar sand will
forever leak out through the stitching).

If there is a concrete ready mix plant around go by and see if they have stucco or mortar sand...works perfectly.
