Re: Minnesota

I recognize that your question was posted years ago but... I just joined LRH and am in northern MN, not far from Grand Rapids. Where are you?

    Sorry about that, cholla chomper. I was actually replying to 1kstr's post from way back in '08 ...and I had (wrongly) assumed his was the first and only post in this thread. (Had too many tabs with LRH threads in view at once and lost my bearings.)

    Anyway, I now see that this thread is still active and you're in Harris, MN. Are you a member of the GRRC?

    Re: Minnesota

    Welcome to LRH and the minnesota thread. This thread has been going for a while, I don't belong to GRRC but have been there a few times and can hear the shooting from my house maybe a mile by way of the crow flys. I am a member of the Isanti County Sportsmans club and range in cambridge and shoot quite often during the spring, summer, and fall, a few months are unbearable to be outside so I reload. Where is up north for you. EDIT>>> oops I see you are around the grand rapids area

    Re: Minnesota

    Thank you, Chomper. I've been reading and referencing LRH threads for a couple years and recently got the itch to engage. Started getting serious about LR shooting in 2009 but, since relocating from VA to MN in FEB '12, I haven't had access to a range greater than 350.

    But now... my local club in Coleraine (Itasca County Gun Club) is relocating and there's a chance we'll be able to build a 1000 yard range on the new property. With that, Iím looking for guidance/SOPs for maximizing range safety and access (i.e. scheduling) for long- and intermediate-distance shooters. Any "lessons learned" or suggestions from anyone with related experience would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I used to go grrc once in a while I had a friend that shot BR and they have a 1000yd range set up with target pit and concrete shooting tables here is a link for the range
    Gopher Rifle and Revolver Club Im sure that someone from there can answer all of your questions about long range set up what works and what dont. Hope this helps.
