Stationed at Ft. Riley. Once a month we have use of a 1,000 meter range. It has nice steel targets. The other range goes out to 300 yds, but we're working on making it go out to 1k using our own targets. It's the only place I've found other than private land to go out that far.

I grew up in Hays, and am in the KC metro area now for school. Looking forward to every trip back to my old stomping ground.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who's face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt

I shot there once years ago with Russ Beale, it is a nice range. Hard to beat something in the 25-06-280 range using a single rifle for Kansas, good for long distance coyotes and deer with modest recoil. Only drawback to the 25 is that there aren't many high ballistic coefficient bullets for real long range or wind. I like lots of rifles but I mostly use a 6mm Rem for yotes and 264 win or 270WSM for deer.

Good luck picking a nice gun, High Plains at Valencia Rd has some decent used guns at times and Pats in Ogden has a great selection if you want to buy a used one locally.

Jason here from Wichita. Grew up in Marshall Co area. 19 years AF and Air Guard (1 more to go whee!) That 1000k range up there at the Ft. sure would be a great place to leg out my new 338 Lapua.

So hello from the Air Capital..

Re: Anybody from Kansas on here?

Nice to see a bunch of you from Kansas on here. I live in Augusta and am a new guy on here. I am not really a long range shooter but am itching to get a savage 110 ba in 338 lapua. For now I'm content to pick off coyotes from my deck with my mp15 and my cooper 22/250, I have gotten 2 with each rifle lately , it's lots of fun and my chickens really appreciate it. I do like shooting prairie dogs with the cooper and antelope hunting with my 300 wby.

I went with a Savage 111G in 7mm mag. That action is looooong. Had a booger of a time mounting my Nikon scope where it needed to be, but finally got it with EGW base and Warne rings. Just need some time to shoot between soccer and softball. Might be awhie.
