100 Yard Rifle Range, Long Distance Shooting, Range 8
Range 8 has 22 shooting positions (tables and chairs) under a covered area.
Ten (10) positions at 100 yards
Four (4) each at 75, 50, and 25-yard positions.
Users may shoot seated, standing, or prone (bring a blanket or mat)
Ranges 7, 8, and 9 all use a Blue light to indicate a COLD range. Additionally, a RED LINE is painted on the floor of these ranges. All shooters must remain behind this line during a COLD RANGE unless they are posting targets or removing brass. The shelf area located behind the shooting benches on each rifle range is to be used for shooting equipment storage while shooting. DO NOT CASE, UNCASED, OR PLACE ANY RIFLE ON THIS BENCH FOR ANY REASON! IT IS NOT A CLEANING AREA; ACCESSORIES ONLY.

What is long-distance rifle shooting?
Long-distance rifle shooting is a sport or activity in which a person uses a rifle to shoot targets accurately at distances beyond the range of typical hunting firearms. This typically involves the use of specialized equipment, such as high-powered rifles and scopes, as well as techniques for adjusting for factors such as wind and elevation. Long-distance shooting can take place at both formal ranges and in more natural settings, such as mountains or open fields.
