Best of the west tv show Phil Conklin who is a member of this site has access to a range in fayette co that's 1400. I met him at the Harry burg show and he was telling me they run some schools in Ohio on the pa border and in Fayette co. If your a local you know it as "on the mountain"

Re: Anyone from pa

jwall3d11,

You live in Washington? I lived there for 40+ years before retiring and going to FL. Back every year to hunt bear and deer. Deer mostly in West Finley area. I know of the range west of Graysville, near Ryersipon Park, 300 yds. Any longer that a person can get to? It would be nice to stretch my 7STW for a change.

Check out Harry Jones Memorial 1000 Yard Club. A benchrest club in Fairview, WV. That's where I do all of my long range work close to home. It's about an hour from Washington I would guess but well worth the travel. Nice benches and Backstops at 100-700yds then a 10 target backstop at 1000.

I wish. The last one I had changed hands. I am on the hunt for one myself. If I find a place I will let you know and perhaps we can meet up.

Anytime. Next time you head up this way from the land of palm trees and bikinis let me know and perhaps we can meet up. Always nice to kill paper way over there with some fellow hunters. Most of the guys down there are into the benchrest game and look at me with great confusion when I try to explain that yes I am shooting at a grand today and no my rifle isin't 15lbs. But boy you can learn a lot from those guys when it comes to rifles and accuracy. If you can experiment with it on a gun they have tried it. Last year an IBSA Heavy Gun record was set. 3.280" ten shot group!

Re: Anyone from pa

I just moved to SW PA from WV. I'm looking to get into LR shooting. My time is pretty limited, but I'd love to get together and shoot/learn with some more experienced folks if we can work out some details.
