Matches cost $20 - $35 depending on the format and membership level.

We have access to 1300 yards on two ranges.

Once you can put consistent tiny groups on paper at 100-300 yards and do it with near perfect recoil control then you can stretch it out. All the while you need to be taking notes on your rifle and load. Dope is ever evolving. If you plan to shoot steel range cards are good enough. If you plan to shoot NRA F Class or High Power you need more accurate data that reflects the environmental conditions. Wind is the hardest part for people. There is no formula because all wind is different. Up and down drafts, swirling currents, the topography the wind is flowing over all plays a part in how the bullet is effected at range.
And you need to learn to walk before you can run.

A couple of pretty good write-up from AccurateShooter:
I guess it would've hurt to just watch and maybe put some rounds down the range on practice day to get a feel for it . but it totally makes sense and will be taking baby steps . I think I'm on the right path as for progress .
