I did too and the more I search the more disillusioned I have become. There is a place up in Minnisoda that ranges out to 750 and have a course using your hunting rifle for $500 but thats for 8hrs..period & they want you to bring 100- 150 rnds and would like them to be Match Grade..seems 270's dont come in Match Grade and altho I could use up my Hornaday BTSP's I'd not be able to hunt with them because I'd be out lol. seems to be a tall order to drive 9 hrs each way for an 8 hr $500 +ammo experience. But like I mentioned I'm cheap. I watched a youtube video of what they do. On the bright side it is just you and or your "party" that gets the instructor's attention on the down side much of what they where teaching I have good grasp of and am fairly decent out to 200 so my challenge wouldn't start happening until the 300 + shots. They to have cameras out past 200 yrds and I thought that pretty cool.I took a took range course several years back and learned a lot. I don’t have much help but it was a blast and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
I do find it odd they require equipment other than gun and ammo. The place I went to had cameras down range once we got past 300 yards.
Make sure your ammo can make the journey out to 1000 yards. I found out the hard way when my light load 6.5 lost control around 650-700.
actually that did come up in my search and funny enough I have hunted not far from there on the Colorado side also have a close friend who owns a micro brewery in ALBQ. I have made Alamosa Co in 15 hrs so that distance is certainly do ableIf you are serious about the 2 day drive (one way?) you might look into the NRA Whittington Center. They have a precision rifle course (or courses) on a up to 1,400 yard range.

I saw that too, it'd be a hoot to long range it one day and AR it the next. And yes the guys did seem very likable.Probably the same place I went to. The two guys running it are great. Over lunch, there was a great talk about the Coriolis effect and the Canadian sniper who holds the record in longest kill shot.
One thing I took away from the class that I do with every gun now, is after sighting it in at 100 yards, move your vertical adjuster on your scope to zero (where it can't adjust anymore) and count the clicks. This way, if you are ever adjusting your scope and screw up, you can always bring it back to 100 yards.
You could be right in fact that it was only 750 yards. They also run a shooting course with AR's and pistols that my buddy took and said it was a blast.

Didja all sleep there in the bunk house ? From what you can remember via on here or U2U I'd appreciate more particulars from what you can remember.
That was my impression as well lol and I looked into the resort and the town in general and would go that route as well if IF I choose that way to go. I appreciate the heads up.We did not stay in the bunk house, aka, shipping container. Brainerd aint too far and is a fun "tourist" town. Better yet, make a vacation out of it and stay at a resort in the Brainerd lakes area and get some fishing/boating in!
watching it now.. certainly what I was envisioning.. Thanks!Quick video of Barbour instruction....
I have watched enough of his videos to put his school on a "vacation" dream list sometime.watching it now.. certainly what I was envisioning.. Thanks!
