Long Range Day (LRD) at FSC consists of three (3) different distances: 227 Yards, 337 Yards, and 427 Yards with several different sized steel targets along with optional paper targets to shoot at. The object of LRD is to provide shooters, experienced or not at long range shooting, a setting to shoot at longer distances than average rifle ranges in the area and is a great place to practice or dial in equipment for long range hunting and competitions – or just to have fun! Shooting for score against your fellow shooters, winning prizes for special stages, or just getting zeroed in, it’s up to you!
Firearms and Ammo used: A variety of firearms used in the past has ranged from rim fire to magnum calibers, bolt, semi-auto, hinge, pump and lever styled actions. Any legal & safely operating firearm (including long range orientated pistols and muzzle loaders) are welcome to participate, including .50 cal rifles, however will be restricted to paper or bring your own steel target. Legally suppressed firearms are also welcome.
No fully automatic rifles of any caliber is to be used. No tracer, incendiary, steel core or armor piercing ammunition allowed.
Target sizes: Various reactive steel target sizes are used to simulate the size scoring rings of popular NRA, CMP, and Bench rest rifle competitions, and also duplicate the average size of the body/vital areas on several types of large, medium, and small game animals so that a shooter can properly range the target and execute the shot with instant feedback of their success. A handout will be provided of the target sizes ( from 3” to 18”), and what they translate to.
