Where are all the 600 yard ranges?

A quick search shows that there are only three 600 (+) ranges in Wisconsin. Sure would be nice if the state would build a PUBLIC range on it's thousands of acres of land. Odds are I'll see a new nuclear powerplant befor the state allows a rifle range. You folks out west should be gratefull you have a place to shoot. Joe

    i think there is only 1 600 yd range in NJ, and there is talk of taking some yardage away to make room for SPORTING CLAYS...

    Mine is about forty yards east of the 400, and about the same west of the 1000.

    Seriously, a 600 yard range takes a lot of acreage, so don't be surprised when they are scarce. Fortunately, we have lots of space out here.

    Got one about 40 minuts south of me, you have to rpove you can hit consistantly on the 100, 200, and 300 before then let you on the 600.

    Its fun and depending on weather I do alright.

    We have at least two 1000+ yard ranges here.I don't have anything to use for this type of range.What pistol or rifle will reach out that far?

    And this has come to pass,not to stay.

    Read a report recently, where a guy was hitting targets at 1 mile (1760yd) and further, with iron sights on a 45-70 "trapdoor" Springfield.
    Most of the military, and a whole slew of comericial cartridges can be used for 1K target. It's not the cartridge, but how good both the gun and shooter are. I'm not talking about winning BR matches, but learning to stretch you abilities and build your confidence.
