      Am setting up a “new” 1000 yard range just north or town. It’s easy to get to and I have located rock pile at 100 yd increments from 200 to 1000 yds (GPS’d) . Have a steel plate (18×24″ painted white at 1000 yds. I will also be taking out my “Iron Ivan” steel silhouette (E Target) to put at 600 to 100 yards. The old hwy runs out through there and I can drive my PU there. I was shooting my M70 suppressed .308W with M118 loads and my M70 target with 175 MK loads. Lots of fun to “ring steel” at those ranges. If you can enlarge the pic I have annotated the various target locations.

      Sorry, adding usable pictures has me baffled……..I copy it “full size” and when I hit save it shrinks to what you see………

      That range must be south of the equator Larry, the picture is upside down.

      Yeah, looking at the postage stamp pic in the post it’s right side up. Click on it and it opens upside down…….just baffles me……..

      My Model 70 .308 win match grade load is the 175 MK and 43 grs of Varget.
      My rifle likes Rel 15 best for the 168 MK.
      I use 44.3 grs.
      The Winchester will consistently shoot half MOA at 200 yds.
      The 3oz. Jewell trigger, and the Leupold MK4 8X25 scope doesn’t hurt.
      It is the most consistently accurate rifle I have ever owned.
      I have not tried it at 600 yds yet.
      I am looking forward to that soon.

      I have a 600 yd range on our own land,but that is that is the best I can do unless I want to drive about an hour and a half to a shooting club range.

      They have 1000 yds, but I am not to keen on shooting on a platform with other shooters that I don’t know.

      Wish I could be there to shoot with you and watch you shoot.
      I am afraid I live a long way from Arizona.

      Here we are shooting in the same area a few weeks ago. It’s a great place to launch lead. Just got to love those old service rifles and long range shooting.

      The strange thing is, the thumbnail icon, is initially correctly oriented within your post. Go figure!

      Nice setup. It is only 621 miles between Los Alamos and Lake Havasu.

      The range at the club here is 300 yards. I do occasionally shoot longer out on the old farm in KS when visiting family and on the Navajo Reservation with my deceased wife’s nephews. The horizon is the limit. We take turns picking out a rock on a distant hillside, then see who can hit it first. I was at a slight disadvantage this past Christmas when my nephew had his new .308 and I had my .45-70.

      Thanks Scharfschuetzer…..if you look straight above the rifle you’ll see the reddish butte (skyline) with the light grey hillside just below the red. Look close and you’ll see an arrow I put there marking the 1000 yd steel plate.

      I had quite the same issue with the images “shrinking”, I realized that when I attached them to the post and the photo shows up where I wanted it, I had to hit after the picture and more to a new line or it would shrink when saved. Hope this helps. Your photos are great!
