Default 1450 yard range in San Luis Obispo

I am not associated with them. I went twice and had fun time but noticed it is not listed in the long range places.

San Luis Obispo Sportsmen's Association
3270 Gilardi Rd, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405

Steel Targets from 200 to to 1450. You can also post paper target at 100 to sight in. Just need RO to call cease fire. Otherwise shoot non stop.

There is also obstacles and a used van if you are into PRS style.

Some Targets for .22 too.

9am to 1 on somedays. I was told they also open on Sundays on the fourth Sunday of each month. So don't believe what Google map is saying. Call if not sure.

That could be fun. Thanks for the heads-up.

Wow! They used to be max 700 yards. This is great!

What’s teh target out there? Their 700 yard target was a man sized, a disc of some diameter (12”?) and a third target I can’t remember (half man?).

What’s at 1450?

I need to plan another family vacation to my alma mater.

oh huh. I figured it was somehow shot from the range house. This is an uncovered firing line. open to non club members? Do I have to drive somewhere different than the normal SLOSA range to register and pay?

Oh, and I envy you. I couldn't figure out how to stay in SLO after graduation. But every year I come back to get pumpkins with my kids at the farm south of SLO and spend some time in town. My wife and I try to think of excuses to move back. We realize for that weekend how much we miss the town.

Yes. Non member pays $20.

Once you enter the main entrance turn right onto the dirt road, after a while may be 800 yard turn left when you see house and shed etc on your left.

Stop before the house and see the RO and pay him cash.

Was this the same range that operators were voicing concerns that business was too slow and potentially could close? With an odd-ball schedule of 9-1 on "somedays" and every fourth Sunday, no wonder.

They doubled the price a couple years ago which makes a drive out the forest worth while.

How do tell you if hit those long range targets? 380 yard one I can tell with the scope easy. But at twice that range no way.

Whats the price to shoot now, $30?

I can easily see hits at 760 yards with a 243, 115gr going an anemic 2885 fps. Anything bigger than a 223 should be ok.

At 1400 its nice to have something with a little more energy to clearly see the splashes

Default 1450 yard range in San Luis Obispo

The price is $20. Very fair.
If you are member only $10 and membership is cheap too.

The short hour is due to there is no enough usage. Recently they amounted they will not open on Thursday anymore since RO is the only one showed up.

I do wish they open on both Saturday and Sunday with bit longer hours.

When I was there I thought the hours are 8 - 4 because Google Map says so. I stayed around 2 and Shawn and Michael were so nice they did not kick us out. I wouldn’t stay that late again though unless they change the hours.

Trying to go back again hopefully soon!

I would use a 243 Varmint master.
What twist are you using with that heavy of bullets?

Rpr. Shoots them like a champ. If the 6 creeds are the same twist, its a winner.

I buy them from david tubbs and the accuracy is great. Shoots better than I can.

Probably 1/10th of a percent of shooters actually shoot past 1000 yards.

It's fun to do, but hard to make $ on a range. Wish I had something like that when I was shooting ELR though

Went there this past weekend and it was amazing! First time shooting past 300yds and I was able to consistently hit the 900yds target. I use a Vortex Crossfire II on my Rem 700 and I could hear and see the hits because they have some kind of reactive red light on their targets where everything you hit the target, the light will flash and you can see through the scope. If I can see through mine on 12x power, I believe the more powerful ones will be even easier. Tried a few on the 1200 and 1000 tarda but those were hard to see with my stuff.

I drove 200 miles to be there and it was worth every single mile! I definitely recommend that place!

And some Thursdays.

they should look into getting a shot marker for that distance. I shoot nearby at a private range and am tempted to push back further. Currently only shooting 1k.

Good to know about SLO thought.

I'm a member there trying to raise awareness as well. Amazing volunteer Range. I can confirm, $20 to shoot, $50 for a year membership, at which point, entry is $10.

Due to the availability of the volunteer RSOs, typically open 9AM to 1PM on Thursdays and Saturdays (email ahead because sometimes they have shooting competitions).

Paper range from 100 yards to 220 yards, steel plates from 500-1450, spaced every 50 yards. (They typically only call cold range once or twice a day)

They are going to have a meeting coming up to talk about the future of the range. If you want to help expand it, or volunteer, I'm sure they would love to talk to you.

Do they offer any other days/hours for certified RSO's or CRSO's to use the facility?

Is there an actual email address or phone number to contact them? I'm heading to SLO at the end of this month and want to shoot while there. I have tried filling out the "contact us" form on the website a week or so ago, but never received a response.

Can anyone just show up and shoot 600+ it shows on their site you have to be approved or something by a RO before shooting past 600.

I just asked to join the FB group, I am not that far away. I am stationed here at Vandenberg AFB. PM me when this meeting is and perhaps I can make it up with my Shot Marker to help show the possibility of Electronic targets. lots of great feedback for the shooters like ammo velocity and group size can be learned while keeping the range hot.

Could even host a wind reading clinic to better explain to new shooters how to better calculate shots.
