Thunder Valley Precision in Kimbolton has a piece of steel at 1720 yards.
TVP doesn't do a very good job of posting schedules (in a timely manner). They have 3 basic courses of fire. The "headhunter" with targets out to 600 yards, the "short course" with targets out to ~550 and the "Intimidator" with targets out to 1165 on the normal COF and a bonus target at 1650. You can engage the 1720 target from the benches. The "matches" are all in a timed environment.
You also have Rayners Range in Blue Rock Ohio. We shoot from 200 - 1000 yards there.
Rayners holds a rifle shoot on the 4th Sunday of every month Feb - Oct. They also shoot on the Saturday before. Shoots start at 9:30 and can run until 4pm, depending on the size of the crowd. It's not uncommon to have 50-60 shooters present.
You can send me a PM for additional info if you'd like.
Gary, guys have connected with it with a caliber as small as the 6X47L shooting 105 Berger VLD's. A lot of the 308 shooters also take shots at it. The trick is reading the wind. Elevation is fairly consistent depending on temperature and humidity. As long as you have enough elevation in your scope, give it a try. It helps to shoot high B.C. bullets that transition the transonic zone well. The equipment (to do it properly) gets pretty specialized and expensive.
Thanks for the replies. I should of added more info. Because of my work schedule trap has been more difficult for me to attend so rifles are filling that void. 100 yards is my local clubs maximum and I'd just like to try farther. Nothing formal or worth traveling very far. Thanks,Richard
