    There is a range down near price that has up to 1000 yard lanes. I would email them to see if they have comps or know who does.

    Did anyone ever resolve the question?

    I was at Lee KAy a couple of weeks ago and one of the range masters had a bench rest rifle set up. I would imagine if anyone knows its the huys that meet and greet and run the ranges.

    Next time I am up there I will try and get some information on competitions.

    Havent heard anything yet. I have become more interested in just going out myself and setting up small steel targets in the mountains and shooting those from hunting positions than anything else right now. I would love to hear some info on this and go check it out though. Any excuse i can use to get out and shoot more is a good one!

    I am just getting into long range shooting, I have been shooting local dynomite shoots for a couple years but nothing over 600. I have a couple 257 ackleys a 270WSM and I just picked up a 300 rum. Anyway Let me know what info you have come up with and I will do the same. Duke

    The range by price is called North Springs Shooting Range and it's way nice. It's ten minutes from my house. The phone number is 435-650-7728.

    Contact the Lee Kay center in SLC for starters. Gallensons Sporting Goods in SLC may be a source of info. Benchrest.com, or NBRSA or the fine folks @ Christiensen arms.

    Does anyone have a link to North Springs Shooting Range? I did a search and can't find it.
