    I have a few new toys too try out. I know about Clark Rifles. And have my app in. But Im looking for a spot for my 50 bmg in particular.Any spots around that can accomodate it? Thanx for any input.

    The only one I know of in SW Washington is Wolverton. They do require membership, but seem have a pretty good payment plan to make it easier to join.

    Head for the hills. Deep in the DNR lands and you shouldn't get hassled as long as you have a good backstop.

    Wolverton's rifle range is only 150 yards,hardly worth setting up for with a .50 cal.BUT,they are open to the public on the second sunday of each month,which is Oct is the 9th. WE have cover,wood stove,and a pop machine.
    Clark at 300 yards is the way to go I think.

    Last I heard Clark won't allow the .50 BMG.

    oops. I believe PB is correct on no .50's at Clark. We do shoot them at Wolverton tho.

    I recently saw an article somewhere that a new range is opening in Castle Rock in November with, if I recall correctly, 300 and 500 yard areas. Unfortunately its 2 months out but worth looking into.
