I would like to try my hand at some very long range shooting. Does any one know a place in So Cal where I could set up and shoot 1200 plus yards? I know some don't want to disclose in a public forum, a PM would work.

thx Diego

Are you asking for a range or a behind the hill spot?

Your best bet is to load the 4x4 and head out to BLM land that's sanctioned for rifle shooting. Do a search on this forum and you'll find a map that shows the BLM areas around SoCal that are good for pistol/shotgun/rifle/night shooting.

Just drive to the desert. Take the first exit off the freeway into Octillo. I sure wouldn't want to walk the 1200 yards to put up a target.

That's why a lot of shooters bring an XR50 or something similar.

If you go to the Piru range you can reach out to 1000 yards.

It's another 40 minutes past Angeles Shooting Range.

That's about as good as it gets unless you wanna go all Lewis and Clark and start an expedition to find the holy grail of public shooting land.

I am willing to go out the BLM, Just not sure where? I have heard out past Barstow, some say Hodges rd and some say it's closed. I am 4x4 for sure so would like a place I can drive into, then to and fro to set up targets. I heard there is a place near Victorville. Ocotillo is cool, is it open and legal? Can I shoot out to 1500 yards? I would like to talk to someone who has been there and done that! I wish I would have made the Calguns Zombie shoot, but I didn't know about it. Being in San Diego I figure I will need to go and camp. I plan to do this only three or four times a year. I will shoot at Pendleton’s 1000-yard range as much as possible but the 338 will really need a lot more real estate to make her happy..

thx for the help.
