Re: places to shoot 500 ++ in PA??

Hey all! I just wanted to throw myself in the mix. I live in Eastern Pa, just south of Quakertown. I'm looking for a range, public or private) to shoot out to 500+. I'd like the chance to shoot to 800, but I'm trying to be realistic.

Can anyone here help me out?

Years ago I belonged to Atglen Sportsmens Club, located just off Rt 41, on the Chester-Lancaster County line. Their range goes to 500 yards. www.atglensportsmensclub.org

I found another range in pa which has a 500 yard range. It is with the Portage Sportsmans Club. I am going to go check it out and I will get back to you all with the information! After looking on the map, it is closer to Puritan off of route 164.

Pennsylvania Gun Club Listing - Traderscreek.com

I'm in Lancaster County and there's not many options within a reasonable driving distance for a "quick" trip to the range...I don't have that much time to get out very often with a 2 year old and one on the way, and obligations to the reserves.

Atglen is full and not accepting applications. Almost an hour away.

New Holland Rifle/Pistol Club is $75 + $250 ($300 for family) initiation fee. Goes out to 600 yards, but the initiation fee...ouch.

Blue Ridge Sportsmen's Club - over an hour to northern Harrisburg - goes out to 300.

I'm looking into some other local clubs, but there aren't many options over 300 yards.

Might be a bit far for you, but Shippensburg Fish and Game goes to 800 yds. We shoot groundhog matches monthly at 200, 300 and 500 meters.
