I live in Browsville, which is about 40 miles south of salem. I cannot find a decent range but have found a place near my house that we can get 300,550,800,880,1000,1490,and 2200 all from one landing. The worst angle is for the 2200 and 880 which are both about 12 deg. It is very hard to find such a place and whithin 3-5 years the trees will start to obscure veiws. For now it is one of the nicest wind free places to shoot or test loads. As for testing myself eastern oregon has many windy places that I have found over the last 6-7 years. When I get bored I go east. I hunt east also. I have drawn tags in about half of the eastern units and there is some good goat and deer LRH opportunities. The Elk tend to stay in the timber, but I have found a few spots for them in the desert also. PM me if you are interested in shooting some time. I am shooting almost every weekend. If its not my own I may be testing one that I put together for someone else. Usually if we plan ahead we can have anywhere from 4-8 people shooting. I have been working on a plan to get one of our beloved grasseed farmers to rent a 1200 or so yard spot to some of us to set up some cement benches for a close level covered range.
Good luck with the move! Anyone else in Oregon looking to get together and shoot? Drop me a line. PS we are not as serius as it sounds. I have been shooting about 6-7 years. I am just now getting to find my you know what with both hands if ya know what I mean? Just some fun guys that like to burn powder, and maybe learn a few things along the way.
