Looks like the "ring of fire" will push through before CMP week

Our ranges are slowly getting to the no blue sky design. Its still sad to see many holes 3-4 feet above target aim point 10 feet away from you.

One of the ranges I frequent has the same design with the overhead baffles to diminish the sound. Happens when there are houses where there didn't used to be when the range was first built.

The baffles at my club are there only because of concerns about bullets leaving the range. They are shot up pretty badly. I can claim one hole for sure (but by accident). I won't be trying to chronograph ammo using a rifle with no sights again.

Cool video. Good luck at Perry Gary.

I have never seen a range like that. Interesting. It could do "double duty" as a place to hang tobacco or maybe as a vineyard :)

I was in the morning relays today, and somehow the rain held off until I got my gear back into my car. As I left, I went through quite a bit of rain.

Kept scratching outside the line slow prone.

RF prone shot with only 2 right on the windage, although I intended to use 3 right.

Almost lost traction on offhand, but got mad, and pulled out the save.

I'll be back.

I was tossed up --- what to take to the range next....you solved it for me.

Garands!

Gary,
I'm curious about the load data for the ammo you use at the 200 yard and 600 yard stages. What do you use in your rifle?

W.E.G.

I don't shoot that rifle at 600. Its a "rack-grade" rifle, with only a trigger job. All the Garand competitions are fired on the SR target from 200 yards.

I'm using the PRVI stuff from AIM. It shoots every bit as good as the various handloads I've tried at 200.

I just noticed the scorecard has a typo.

Scorecard says 70 seconds for the rapid-fire.

Actual time allowed is 80 seconds per the rulebook.

When I do reload for the Garand, this is what I've been using at 200.

30-06
150 Sierra Matchking
45.5 gr. Varget
Mild load ~2500 FPS
35,000 PSI

But, like I said, I can't shoot it well enough to see any difference between that load and the PRVI at 200. Considering the high price of Sierra match bullets it doesn't make any sense for me to reload 30-06 to shoot 300-400 rounds per year. Aguably, the the handload has a little less recoil than the PRVI. But, with the shooting jacket, and careful placement of the butt on the shoulder MUSCLE rather than the collarbone, the recoil is not a problem for me for no more than 50 shots per outing.

Ya real smart people that buy land and build a house and raise a family when they knew it was at the receiving end of a rifle range. Then the club has to pay to make it safer for those smart people at the clubs expense. It seems that is a bit backwards to me that the clubs have to spend that extra money not the smart people that build a house at the receiving end of a rifle range.

That happened to an airfield in FL. Real state speculator doused some money and build a subdivision right on the end of the runaway for an airfield running since WWII. Then sued the airport authority for the noise. I do not know if the settlement included just a ton of money or also buying the entire subdivision, but he made a killing.

Switzerland gun ranges are having problems too. New regulations require them to install insanely expensive new electronic target systems; the old ones are not good enough. As a result, the poorest ranges are having to close their doors. But nobody can say they are being closed by gun control laws.... right?

I shot on a military range in Germany very similar to that in the late 70s. Houses were fairly close by so the overheads plus a built up impact area at 100 meters kept all projectiles contained.

Back in the 1980s and early '90s when I shot highpower it was 70 seconds. It must be an old score card.
