I can walk out the back door, maybe 30 -40 yds to the shooting bench and I have target butts at 100, 200, 300 and 350. To shoot further than that it's an hour to hour 20 min, to the 1,000 yd range. It depends on the distance I plan on hunting whit the gun, if it's less than 400 yds I'll figure out a load at 100 yds then shoot it at 200 & 300 to verify it. Some guns have a 200 yd zero, the long range gun I group and zero at 300 yds. I do a lot at 100 yds because many guns won't be used much past 300, let alone 400. Most chrono work is done at 100. I shoot facing South, and the shooting lane is a 20' wide swath that is cut out of the woods so it isn't the brightest patch of ground, but I have to shoot that direction - there is a natural ridgeline at 400 yds ant the house is on the North end of the property.
