Creekside in Taylorsville is probably closest to you. 100yd for non-members.
Advanced Bullets in Temple isn't too far off. 100 yd.
Talladega. 600 yd.

Ok I have talked about checking out creek side
Rex,

Did you ever end up checking out creek side? What do you think? I am a newbie located in Georgia and looking for places to shoot as well. I'm located in the Buford area, so I'm a bit closer to gunsitehills (about 1.5 hour drive). I'm thinking of giving that a try a soon.

I'm in Marietta. Talladega is heaven on earth for shooters. It's an easy drive once you are on I-20 and well worth it. The 2 coolest parts are the electronic targets and the Range Officers, who are all accomplished shooters. I've picked up a lot of knowledge from them and they've gone out of their way to help me.

Riverbend Gun Club (http://www.rbgc.org/) is about an hour north of us, up I-75. It is a first class facility. The cool thing about them is that their matches are all open up to the public. I shoot their 200 yard rimfire match, which is so much fun it should be illegal. Next one is in June 2. 200 yd rimfire match.

Other options include the various indoor ranges and Pickens County Sportsman's Club (http://www.pcsc.us/)

Two Mikes,

When you say Talladega, do you mean the CMP at Talladega? That place looks awesome! How far does their rifle range go? It's about a 2.5 hour drive from me, but looks like it would be worth the trip a few times a year.

Yes. I was referring to the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park.

The big range has electronic target monitors at 200 yards, 300 yards and 600 yards. There is a 100 yard range down the hill with electronic target monitors. I usually start at the 100 yard range and shoot rimfire (my love) and check my zeros, then proceed up the big range for real practice. What is neat is you get instant feedback with the monitor and don't have to pull targets.

You'll go there once and you'll want to go back and back. They have matches that are open to the public as well. If Augusta National Golf Club was a range, it would be Talladega.

Im in Douglasville and shoot at a range in Waco to test loads it's a 200 yard range. Then I have personal land I can get to 1000 on one side and 500ish on the other side. Shot me a PM and maybe we can work out a range day or something. Will need to cool off ..lol

Hello all,
I shoot at Pickins sportsman club we have a 100,300 & 467 yd range.
Would love to learn to shoot even farther but need to figure out my data in strelok and learn to use my kestrel 5700 in conjunction with it.

I’m in Woodstock. Typically go to Riverbend for the hunter rifle days to get midrange practice in, and Creekside for load development. Always up for going somewhere to stretch it out. Was a member at SCOTG before they shut down memberships. Haven’t had a spot to get 1000yds plus since then.

Hope to get to Arena later this month, but my schedule is pretty tight the weekend they have the range available.

+1 for the CMP range at Talladega. It's about two hours from Atlanta but the facilities are awesome, the staff is great and, typically, it's not crowded.

Hello from LaGrange, GA.

I read somewhere that the CMP range is not good for sighting in or accuracy testing, because you can't put up targets and get accurate measurement of group size. Is that true? If not, I'd like to go. It's about 1:45 drive from me.

Has anyone been here: https://strongpointshooting.com/
It's less than an hour from me and I only have 125M range at home.

Concerning Arena. I've been to the long range only. Out to 800M worked will for me, but the next target was at 1200M and I was shooting a 308. There was no berm behind it, it was just in a grassy field. Never could figure out where I was missing.

You can measure your group size at the CMP RANGE. Just ask the range Saftey officer the explain it to you. When I was there I ask how accurate it could measure they said it could measure more accurate than paper. I’ve also been to strong point many times. Good range to shoot. Each lane has it’s on color steel target out to 400 yds. Strongpoint also has pistol bays. Concerning Arena I’ve taken my .308 Win out to 1224 yards there with no problems. They have a berm behind nearly ever target now.

I really want to get over there and shoot a competition. That may be a great opportunity to do it. I haven’t shot any competitions yet but I’m starting with some local matches next month. May would give me some time to get a little experience.

What's up guys? Jeter here. I'm out between Dallas and Temple GA. I'm new around here, but have been shooting my whole life. Just recently started trying to get into longer ranges. So far I've only shot to 600 at the CMP in Talladega. Eventually I want to try 1 mile.

I live in Columbus. I like strongpoint. It’s not to bad of a range and fairly close to Lagrange
Was told about strongpoint when I bought my new rifle from shooters in Columbus. Me being from Albany we have a very nice range in baconton but it's a membership range which is the only reason I haven't shot it yet. I do have a mwa range I've been shooting at not to far but it only goes to 200yrd for rifle.
