    I'm looking to get into the Long Range shooting sports but the only problem is I haven't lived in WA for all that long and I don't know where to start looking for a Range/Club to join... I recently purchased a 338 LM and I'm soon going to be sticking a NF 5.5-22x50 or 56mm on top. Iv'e done some 50 cal shooting in the past out to the 1000yrd mark back in the midwest but I'm kinda lost out here with no direction... Anyone have any good advice on where I should start looking???

    Thanks! :cool:

    Best thing for you to do might be to hop on Snipershide and look up the SHWW thread in the Members Link Up area. Lots of guys around your area that know of good places to shoot.

    +1, best long range setup I've seen to date

    Other places like Renton Fish & Game and Snoqualmie Valley Rifle Club have good semi-long distance ranges as well

    It's a bit of a drive, but Upper Nisqually Gun Club does 600 yd shoots too.

    You can come and shoot out to 500 meters with us at the range in Pe Ell, WA. There are cool steel targets to knock down at 200, 300, 385 and 500 meters. I probably should mention that you have to shoot the targets standing up with no jackets, slings, etc. :laugh:

    That 338 Lapua will beat the snot out of you before you make it through a match and might damage the targets. Bring out something else and shoot highpower silhouette with us, though. Look on the Pe Ell Sportsmen's club website for schedule and location.

    I second JLR. I know there are a couple guys in your area, one of them shooting a magnum also. He is a good man (I met him at a match in January), and he is always looking for people to shoot with.
