Re: Hi from the UK

I've personally taken my 300rum out to 1540 yds on a steel half figure 11 and when i go next time we should be able to get out to 1760 so i've shot the mile (fingers crossed)

he's got targets from 100 to 2000 yds and lots of angle shooting etc

Re: Hi from the UK

Sounds like a heck of a range, what does it cost? Is it a private or public range? do you have to be a member?

Re: Hi from the UK

google it, and contact andrew who runs it?

it's a private range so no nonsense with stupid competancy cards! or those ridiculous HME regulations !

if you get a few mates together it's not too expensive especially when you consider you will be shooting all day , you will need at least 100 rounds per rifle ! i take double that?

Re: Hi from the UK

tackb, thanks for responding. I live across the pond so getting a few together to go shoot not likely. I was just curious how things worked and cost over there.

Re: Hi from the UK

sorry , my bad i thought you were in the uk!

it's roughly 100 for the day each for a group of 4-6

were very short of places to shoot steel here in the uk and recently the military who have to approve most ranges in this country have banned high muzzle energy rifles unless you shoot and prove your zero at 200m before you shoot , every time ! so to shoot on saturday and sunday you would have to do the HME test each morning ! they however don't have to and to top it off they have specifically banned the 338 lapua but still use it themselves on the ranges? rather ironic because it was the military use of one that caused all this nonsense in the first place would you believe!
