Re: long range and Indiana living don't match
Depends where you live and who you know. I have a 300 yd fixed range in my backyard extendable to 400yd with a portable bench. I have shot to 860yd on land I have permission though it is 90min away; I could set up a 1 mile shot there if I wanted to but getting downrange to check the target would be a huge ordeal.
Indiana has tons of farmland, the real issue is stopping the bullets reliably as there are more houses than out west.
