Does anyone know where I can shoot a few shots with my rifle at 300 yards? ( No. Central wis.) The range that I am a member of only goes to 200, I am 'Wyoming bound' and would like to try a bit longer. Bob - Rhinelander

ardeekaye, definitely shoot at 300 yards, practice at the ranges you expect to kill an animal at is important. Knowing your range is even MORE important though. Estimating becomes a real issue out on the plains where you have no normal reference points.

But don't put down your "Old Wisconsin Eyes". Back in 05, this old Wisconsin boy went to Africa and did two one shot kills at over 450 yards. A good laser range finder is worth its weight in gold.

Good luck and have fun,

Theres a 500 yd range on the east side of Shiocton. Off Hwy 54 Behind the Recreational area accross from the airport, Way in the back. Costs like 5 bucks to shoot all day.Honor system last time I was there. Have to bring your own targets an holders or props an clean up after. No alcohol.. Smile

Go to the Duane Corbin shooting site in Marathon county, outside of Mosinee. They have 25, 50, 100, 200, 300, and a 600 yd range. The web site also has a map of the sites, times they are open and fees, as well as other info. Hope this helps, tr

..I'm starting to think that too... I guess I will put the rifles ( 2 of the following... 308 Ruger american/130 Barnes handload...25-06 Sprinfield sporter 110 accubond handload.... old remington 725/140 sierra handload) "dead nutz" at 200 yds.. 2 of the 3 will make the trip, depends on their performance in the next 4 weeks. Went out today, dead calm, misty rain, and all shot around 1.5" at 200 yds. Last time I shot at a measured 300 yds, I had a 7mm remy mag, and it was 7" low at 300, dednuts at 200 "close enough" at 100, and according to the 'books' and charts, down 40" at 500. The ranch where I am going, is large and vast, a few years back, the ranchers son got a very nice 5x5 mulie at 560 yds., a few of us witnessed that shot, it was with a CZ 6.5x55... but the guy knew his rifle, and its performance at long ranges( he live there..)Thats why I'd like to try 300, I would not attempt a shot much more than that with my old wisconsin eyes.. Thanks, Bob

your best bet is to shoot 200 yd here and find a range out there to shoot 300yd. with the travel and elevation changes it would be a good idea to practice where you hunt so to speak. Wink

The Dells Rifle Club range has a 200 yard bench but not a 300. Find a hayfield...
