Are there any shooting ranges that allows 5.56/.223 long rifles in Orange County area or close to?

On target allows rifle cal. Long guns? They must have a good backstop?

They allow it but you need to attend thirds Sunday rifle class first. They want to make sure that you know what you are doing so you don't hurt yourself or damage their equipment. They also allow all kinds of surplus ammo. Magnetic ammo is good there.

Raahauges in Norco/Corona is an outdoor range with no "legal" ammo restrictions. Place is great.

This is correct. Last time I saw, the cost was $25 and you get a card. The class is only about an hour and a half it seemed. It's really to cover their liability, because the backstop is upgraded and great, but I'm not so sure about the roof... (and a trajectory-arc would seem to follow right across the 5 freeway!)

+1. And they make you fire 3 rounds first to see how far apart your grouping is (at least they did when I was there). I think they'll inspect your weapon or restrict you or something if your spread is too wide between shots.

Like others have said, I'd hit up Raahauge's instead (not too far from the O.C.).

.223? hell, they allow you to shoot everything up to and including .338 lapua. They have a 300 win mag there to rent.

I actually have not taken the "prove" yet LOL

How far is too far? I am not a good rifle man but when I aim for the head I can hit the head, just not the same red spot in the middle...

Field Time is supposed to open up in Stanton in April... but we'll see. Opening date has been pushed back a number of time.

Iron Sights in Oceanside has 25 yard lanes and allows rifles. I've fired .30-06, .30-30, 7.62x54R, 7.62x39 and .223 there.

They do not allow bi-metal rounds and they do not allow Wolf ammo of any kind.

$20 and it's about 45 mins long. They've had rounds escape from the roof.

Raahauge's is only about 15 minutes away from me. How are they on the weekends?

why would anyone want to shoot a rifle at 25 yards ? the only reason i could see is to function check the rifle

Or to get some practice in without driving an hour one way, to the nearest outdoor range.
