Northern IL or Southern WI ranges?
Hey all, I recently moved from Minnesota to IL for work, I am now looking for a range somewhat near Chicago that I can shoot mid-long range.
I am in the western suburbs and willing to travel 1-2 hours for a good range.
Most of the ranges I find in Illinois are 100yd or less and I am looking for something I can practice and improve my skills and handloads, especially from 200-500yd. I am not against crossing into Wisconsin (Milwaukee is 2 hours and Beloit is just under 2 hours) or Indiana (Gary and Crown Point are both 1 1/2 hours).
So far the best option I have found is Aurora Sportsmenís Club in Waterman, IL, they are an hour away, but I think their membership fees are crazy - new members pay $280 "initiation fee" plus $280 a year, so just to get started is $560... They offer 25, 50, 100, 200, and 600 yd ranges...
