Gillette, Wyoming - Mac's Gunworks' 1,760 yard steel target range

What a treasure this shooting range is! It is located about 12 miles south of Gillette, Wyoming and about 1 mile east of Hywy 59.

I have shot there a few times this year. Owner Chuck McIntosh has steel targets at every 50 yards out to about 1,000 yards and then every 100 yards after that.

It is a fantastic place to validate your trajectory at long range.

There are a few benches under a shade cover.

You can drive your own vehicle on a 2 track road out to the targets for re-painting and target group measuring.

I believe he charges $10 per day.

For directions contact Mac's Gunworks.

Thats awesome! That is very close to where we antelope hunt every year, would be awesome to check dope when we get there. Is it open year around?

Beyond that Chuck is an ace of a guy. Also has been known to build some fine guns.
God willing i'll be stopping to pay him a visit this fall. Just watch that damned coyote.

Unfortunately his pet coyote was shot by somebody. Sore subject with Chuck. She was chained up at the time. Used to want to nip at people as they come in. Great range and a nice guy that is very knowledgeable. Bruce

Too bad about the coyote, i can understand chuck being upset over that.
Amazing story as to how he got that and how it survived. Talk about divine intervention, thats classic in my opinion. im wondering how the surreget mother
took all that. Good reason for me to call Chuck.
