    Mission Rod and Gun rifle range distances

    Can't find on their website and their clubhouse is closed. Sighting in new scopes and I'm trying to figure out what distances they use on the general rifle range. Can someone help me out? Doing charts.

    Cheers, Redemption.

    I think they are 25m, 50m, 100m, 200 and 250.

    Clubhouse usually closes around 2.30 members only at the ranges not even guests at the moment.

    I do believe that they are only allowing members. I saw something on there about a 300meter range only for 300 club members. I'd call the clubhouse when its open

    Everything is in meters EXCEPT the 300. It is in yards. They didn't have the distance for meters. Anyone can shoot out to 300 using the standard plywood butts. The target frames in the concrete butts are only for use at Club 300 or for matches.

    When the target frames are up they are probably 6-8 yds behind the boards, so probably correct

    The target frames are at 300 yards as that was long range competition before metric.

    The boards are set forward of the butts but generally around 297 . . . close enough to 300 yards for the girls I take out.

    You are correct on the other target boards set at 25, 50, 100 and 200 metres.

    One the left side are the Silhouette rimfire set at 40, 60, 77 and 100 metres.

    The center fire silhouette stands are roughly 180, 220, 260 (may be a factor closer) and 300 metres (set on the far bank and may not be exact).
    The targets used are scaled appropriately.

    Prior to the recent enlargement of the lease, the far left corner of the rifle range was inside 300 metres and once over the berm that was off property.

    I went out in the bush to sight my rifle. Was very easy to do. Bought 100 yards of fishing line and strung it out on the road.
