Correction:

Tri-County Gun Club, Cuyama CA. 1,000 yards plus


The majority of the range including the 800 yard line and the target butts are in San Luis Obispo County. The 900 and 1,000 yard lines are in Ventura County

CA is difficult with BLM requirements, but keep driving east to NV or AZ, and you'll do fine. Just hide your CA license plate, or they'll start shooting at you.

It's called a high-speed low-drag magazine. Some Californians want them even more compact or to have them neatly machined to the receiver for better tolerances.

I'm not sure what you mean here.

BLM land is pretty much unrestricted outside of certain no shoot zones near established camp grounds and specific points of interest. BLM land is just about the only place to set up for anything over a 1/4 mile. Speaking specifically about San Diego and imperial counties.

It is a private range, but Avenal Gun Club near Coalinga has a silhouette range and 600-900 yards steel. Membership is full, but you can get on a wait list.

pictures taken by buddy behind his R700 in 308. He was nailing the 900 yard steel with 175 grainers in windy conditions.

220-550 yard silhouette range (chickens, pigs, turkey, and ram lines)



600, 700, 800, and 900 yard range. There is also a LR shooting program which is 50 shots, with one shot on each target (the targets are the white things you see sprinkled on the hill are numbered and are 1-2 MOA sized steel). Distance is given to you right before you shoot and you have X minutes to fire at the X amount of targets at that station. There are 4 stations. you walk the hilly course. I plan on attending the one in April.

The NCSA Pala range in San Diego county actually has steel out to 887 yards, not 600. Slight angle too.

6˚ but not enough to effect an elevation change much. Thats a 5 yard difference.

you don't start worring about up or down angle till it gets more then 15˚

@ 15˚ 887 would be 856
