    I still have a little clearing and dozer work(berms) to do, plus the new construction for the reloading room with cement tables, but there is a new 900 (hopefully 1k after I get through) place to shoot in Southwest Mississippi.
    The timber cutters and dozer guys left Wednesday and I have been braking it in. If anyone needs a place to shoot intermediate ranges I am willing to share my blessings. Now if someone in the area can just find a place to shoot a little further, let me know.

    Here is a pic from behind my 300WSM

    Jimm,
    You didnt get my email? I leave next week....decided you were not interested.......J/K But, I am headed that way for an antelope hunt on Pat Lyons ranch near Clovis very soon. I dont have my calendar but I think it is the 18th of September. Maybe I will have some good news when I leave. WIll a 6mm 115g DTAC kill one of those antelopes or should I pack something a little bigger?

    How much acerage does it take to be able to shoot 1000 yds comfortably? I live in SE La. Looking for land to buy in MS to escape from hurricanes. And also to just shoot long range.

    It would only take about 8 acres if it were narrow enough. (Thats what the guy at the co op figured my shooting lane is) Hmmm.....I know of a great piece of hunting property for sale in Claiborn County MS 490 acres 2.5k per acre. Wish I could afford it right now. It isnt listed, but I know the owners. You could probably talk me out of thier info if you would promise me a hunt.

    How far are you from Pascagoula? They have a 1k range and have F-Class matches. I am trying to find some info about it. I am only gettting to shoot f-class the first saturday of the month and want to find more matches.

    Hey, New guy here. I'm from Brandon MS and happen to be in Biloxi tonight. I travel the southern half of the state in sales and the north shore of LA. I have been looking for some places to shoot longer range. What do you know about the Pascagoula Range? I'm actually going to be there tomorrow, I'll stop in the local gun shop and ask around for some info. If anyone ever wants to hook up and shoot, I'm always game.

    Deltahunter, Your the same one from Predatormasters aren't you? Good to see you here.

    Eddybo, Where in SW MS are you located???

    No, actually I'm a different guy. I've never been to Predatormasters.

    Totch94,
    I am in McComb. I can save you a little shoe leather. Here is the link to the range. There is an address and map.

    Always ready to shoot here. Just let me know when. A few of us from the MDWFP forum are going to get together here and shoot, as long as everyone is safe they are welcome.

    When I lived in Kokomo MS. where we had a 1,300 yard range that use to be an old abandoned air strip where they use to land crop dusting planes many years earlier. It was only 18 feet wide but just as clean as a golf course and as flat as a pancake. You just can't imagine how bad I miss that place...

    Now after moving back to my home state of Oklahoma, there are a lot more places here where one can stretch it out a bit. We have a 400 yard range on our property but have to travel less than 15 minutes to have a place to shoot over 1,000 yards....
