That would be Ella Vella. Shane has done a great job setting it up as a top class facility.

Wapol don’t share the same enthusiasm.

 Interesting stuff!!

 

There is now a 2 mile ( 3525 yards!! ) comp in the states, hard to comprehend...

 

Projectiles are travelling for up to 6 seconds, lots of time for mother nature to affect the outcome...

 

The target for that range is a 48"x60" rectangle, not much smaller than a mans chest in reality...

 Pob i was reading an article where a fella was necking down a .50 cal to a 375 and achieving 3355 fps with a 400 grain projectile!!

 

That is out there!!

 

He was modifying his loads though as he would shoot out a barrell in 200 rounds!!

 

Costly little hobby!!

Holy crap, that’s dedication

Holy crap, that’s dedication to the art! Used to shoot with a guy years back that had a .44 Automag, used to make all his own using cut down .308 brass, always thought that was some good effort till you told me about that one!

Been trying to shut him down for ages.

Pay your $250 get license. Still have to have cool down period ( background checks ect) by police. For the average joe who doesn't know any property owners ,who would like to own a rifle ( target shooting, goats, foxes ect would be mint). Hard one . Or they could join a club and get one .Better off knowing what people own , rather than them trying to get one by other means. Hard one , arguements for and against.

 Good on him, guns don't kill people, people kill people. 

 

Are they going to introduce a knife license in this state after some recent tragic family slayings?
