I shot a .3 with my 22-250 last summer, I went to the range last fri and was breaking in the new 700 in .223 and sunday went out to the kids farm with the jeep and blazed a trail out to my hunting spots the snow from 15inches to 3 1/2 feet deep, looks like a good melt comming this weekend.

    looks like Thursday will be my day at the range this week...out of town this weekend, which is kind of unfortunate, Saturday is supposed to be just about 50, perfect, and then we get slammed with highs in the 20s next week

    Thanks Cholla for the welcome.

    I have been looking for a good outdoor range for quite awhile, at this point an hour to Harris sounds great actually! I will check the Isanti county range as well.

    Once I buy some larger land eventually I will make my own range, but until then, I can be happy having to go a ways.

    Thanks again for the info on Isanti
