The first link is to the home page of the Colfax Gun Club, who host the match. There is basic info on the match at the bottom of the home page. The second link is to a thread at the dreaded AR15 dot com, where some of their members discuss the match in greater detail. Hope this helps. I too am in the Cedar Rapids area.

Iowa dude checking in. I'm in Waterloo.
Have you heard of Sureshot Range south of LaPorte City Iowa? John Fetzer is the owner. Goes out to 500 yards. Very nice pistol range too.

Is anybody aware of any places to shoot long-range (or semi-long range at least) in the central Iowa area? There's some decent public ranges but they all seem to stop at 100 yards.

Is that the guys farm near Mt. Auburn? If so, it is indeed a nice place to shoot. Only goes to 465 yds though, unless he's added some.

Glad to see this thread active. And the old forum back!
I live in KC but travel home to see my family in LaPorte City frequently.
If any of you guys in NE Iowa plan a shoot let me know as I would love to attend. I can bring steel with me if needed.
Best wishes from MO.

For those of you who live in Eastern Iowa (Iowa City) where do you guys shoot. Other than a some private that is about an hours drive and local shooting ranges I am having trouble finding areas for long distance shooting.

The High Lakes range north of Afton has had additional dirt berms added to the rifle range. There are berms every 100 yards out to 600 yard, and there is also a 500 meter berm, and a berm at 770 yards.

Range fees are still the same at $5 daily use fee or $45 for a yearly membership.
