Cant open it on my phone but would be intrested in shooting there on occasion. I live and work in NH and make my own schedule. Is there contact info on the pdf for shooting there?
Nice. Yes, I will check it out. Thanks
Just opened the club letter. Pretty cool and worth the 20 bucks for even a few times a year.
Are there caliber restrictions on any of the other ranges? *I see there is a mention about the creedmore?
I will put the 14 May date in my calendar and try and make it.
Has there beem any talk of doing a weekend date?
I've shot off a few emails to the info listed and haven't heard anything back. Is it as simple as showing up on the date with $5?Post #1 has last years newsletter.
I think email addresses/membership info are listed in there and that info is still valid.
Ill ask about new newsletter in the am.

Bored?!2020 News letter posted in first post. Scheduled ranges and their descriptions are in the news letter.
Note the new rules for "Guests".
Whoever sponsors you has to babysit you. You are married together through the duration of the shoot. One sponsor, one guest.
Maybe not this bad....

but something similar.
They are wanting the sponsor to ensure you are not skipping rounds in nor throwing them off into the wilds of central Massachusetts.
For the low membership fee its probably best to just join.
I will sponsor a guest but you better be able to hit or at least scare what you are shooting at.
You are on Snipers Hide and the targets at Devens tend to be kind of, well, huge.
They are made for Army guys to shoot.
@Nik H came out there with his AI and I think he was bored. Beautiful facilities, a good range to get data on, but if weather is not being a bitch the challenges are very manageable.
You should have a solid 100 yard zero and at least a JBM print out based on either a drop down menu factory ammo they have loaded or from using your rifle and ammo data.
That should get you close enough that the club isnt concerned about your skills. They dont expect everyone to be Dave Tubb but if you ask one of the old time club members "What should I dial on my scope to hit at 600?" they will probably give you the Capt Pecard look.

They are good guys and they do want new members.....they just cant have an incident that dislodges them from the range.
That said....dont be scared. come out and shoot, prove yourself capable.
Not even going to be a bad day really. A little rain....bunch of tough guysDamn,
Tomorrows shoot cancelled.....
"It wouldn't be spring in New England if the weather wasn't schizophrenic. Expecting cold snow/ice/rain mix for tuesday morning.
Normally, I'd plan on powering through it, but with things the way they are right now, I don't think it's worth potentially lowering anyone's immune system. We all need to stay as healthy as possible for a while longer.
We're scheduled for the pistol date on the 24th right now. We'll see how things look at the end of this week.
Stay healthy and warm."
Yesterday I was shooting 2.5 MOA 5 shot groups at 200 yards with my 6.5 and was like WTF. Day before 0.5 MOA or better with a 338 LM.Its the most fragile aspect of Devens.....
They are weather sensitive.
I look at weather as an important, ever present variable.
They consider weather as avoidable.

I checked everything.
Mirage was unreal...I said can't be. Pulled targets back to 100 yards and did a dot drill. 14/15 1" dots hit.
Environmental conditions rule the day
