Shooting range in Southeast?

Hi guys,

I've just gone through a relocation and I am now firmly planted here in South Carolina. Being new to the area and not knowing much about the area, I was wondering if anyone might know of a range (300 yds.+) in the vacinity.

I'm in the extreme Southwest corner of the state, on Lake Hartwell & the Georgia border.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

The Gun Site Hills range is the longest one in Northeast Georgia that I know about. It is located a few miles east of Lexington Ga on US 78. The guys there are into long range shooting big time. Chief is super. I take it you are a sheep hunter. Where did you move from? Contact me for other info. Thanks.

Check out Mid Carolina Rifle Club, website (I believe) is Mid-Carolina Rifle Club

This is located in South Congaree just outside of Columbia. There are plenty of ranges and out 100& 200 yard range is currently enjoying a great makeover. There are a lot of shooting diciplines involved with this club.

To join, you must be present at one of our monthly meetings and then show up for a range safety briefing. Currently dues are $100/year but that is likely to increase tp $130. We need to pay for certain safety issues and normal range maintenance.

If you live over a certain number of miles from the range and I can't recall the number, the cost is cheaper.

State supported range outside of Lyman Thompsons I think. Get people happy to see you come and shoot.

Turn left on Foster Mill Road and drive 2.5 miles (paved road becomes gravel road). Range is on the left side of the road. Hours: Tuesday - Saturday: 9 am - 5 pm (EST) or as posted.

Yes there is and it is real close to home for you. Elbert County Gun Club in Elberton, Ga. 706 213-0098. Talk with Craig Smith(club manager) and he will fix you up. We have a 400 yard range,pistol range, archery range and the "shotgunners" dream clays. Just down the road we have our 1000 yard range at Graben Farms which will be a One Mile Range sometime in the near future. J.D.
