I shoot out that way, just past the range on BLM land. We are looking to try that range at some point, but we can shoot 1k where we go. Thanks for the reply, hope to meet at some point.

That sounds doable.....I will chat with wife and get it locked in. She really wants to shoot her new 6 Creed out to distance.

Update - Wife works the 20th but is off the 21st......shall we?

yes lets plan sunday the 21st...the only thing that will cause an issue is Q&D is doing the pipe line out by where i shoot so as long as we can get around it(which has not been a problem as of yet)we are good...ill talk to the guys at Q&D and make sure were ok.

what time and how far? velvetant can not come out real early.

Being it's our first shoot with new people I'm all for keeping it simple, I'm good with 800 yards or so depending on weather conditions, target sizes, shooters abilities. We can complicate things once we learn where everyone is at.

I have targets and hangers out to 925 at 100yd increments so everyone should be good...the wind is tricky but that’s the best part.

Nice.
I'm hoping to get out soon to zero my rifle and varify dope. I just got it back together after having the stock inletted by CDI. 18" barreled 6.5 Creedmoor dedicated suppressed rifle.
If not I'll bring along my other 6.5 Creedmoor

I don’t mean to bring this back from the dead...but I bought a place in southern Reno and am looking to meet some people to shoot with. I’ve been to the county range a couple times and it’s good for what it is, but would love something else. I’m not here full time, still work in California, but I’m around a couple times a month. You guys still meet up and shoot? Was planning on shooting the long range Varmint Match in June if anyone else is going.

Per my text sorry we missed you this weekend..

We had 3 ranges set up.. (if you count the 22 range with the NRL pack). 12 of us were just plinking

This one was out to about almost 2k at the longest target. Most the guys were on the one we had at 90° to the right. That went to almost 1300 but was set up @100, then @ 279, 500, 589, 822, 989, 1292..

Here are how nice the A-Tip, ELD, Bergers stay if they just miss a plate around 2K - Calvin was tempted to reuse his A-tip lol

FYI we stayed and cleaned up every casing including the 22LR cases, even the frag ~~ have seen people leave their crap all over BLM.. Especially sad in such a place like this.
