Will be at TVP as soon as it open tomorrow getting some rounds down range on a new setup if anyone is around and wants to hangout! I'll be the guy in a dark blue "We the People" shirt shooting a Savage 110 HS Precision.
I seemed to notice this yesterday. A couple gentlemen had setups 5-6k before accounting for the Gen3 Razor HD to top it off, and they were seemingly happy just shooting steel at 600.Not confusing at all...if you are shooting 600+ yards....lots of folks shooting the short stuff....and lots of puffs of dirt dancing around the 600yd target...but further out....you can generally have a target almost all to yourself.
Next time you go...take a break from what you are doing...and just walk around and observe. You will see some serious money in some rifles and scopes.....and you will see those same people shooting comfortably at 400-500 yards....and seemingly afraid to stretch it out farther in fear that they will actually miss a shot. You will also see a lot of dirt being kicked up at the 600 yard target and very few people trying 1000.
Many of us talk a lot of shit on these forums....and less can actually show up and do it. I just show up to practice and have fun.
Where's the new pavilion in relation to the existing one? When did it go up?
I was there last on April 25th and didn't notice anything different.
Anyone know how many people can shoot there at one time during a open range day?
Does each bench have its own set of plates? Seems it would get confusing if multiple people shooting at the same plates.
Awesome. I did see the pistol pit and steel uspsa targets. Guess I'm gonna have to drag my carry optics rig and couple hundos of 9mm as well.The new pavilion sits on a small mound, is to the left and a little behind the main pavilion. A new dirt berm isolates the two pavilions from each other.
Cheap compared to my local rates. I think $30 a day for nonMembersCool, how much is it? hourly or daily rate?
How much to rent out? I could probably never get my unit to do it, but we get MWR funds and could make the trip to sling some lead, we have a few shooters and a lot of hunters.
Currently you can shoot two 18" round pieces at 1 mile...and hopefully the 12" square plate is back up at 1 mile....so I think I have this right:What is the max distance?
I think if you read this persons experience at TVP...it will answer most...if not all of the questions you will have about Head Hunter and Intimidator matches at TVP.I couldn’t find descriptions of the events on the TVP website. I figured out that GBA is the Global Benchrest Association, but what is the Head Hunter?
Usually what people are doing...is they think those big target backers at 1 mile...are the actual steel targets....and they can't understand why the steel doesn't move when they think they shoot them. The 18" steel rounds....you can hear when you hit them....many seconds later.338 LM AI w 300 Berger's hits hard at a mile. 14 mil elevation. Looked like a few people were attempting to shoot at paper at a mile. Seen random shots dropping short off to my right.
My spare barrel should be here in a few months. Bartlein GT finished at 1-8 for Warner Flatlines. I will have it ready for the spring and hope to make it for some 2500 yard shooting.
Hahahaha that was definitely me. I had no idea. There’s no orientation! I also went through 33 rounds from the 7 SAUM before discovering the scope rail was loose. All a good learning experience.Usually what people are doing...is they think those big target backers at 1 mile...are the actual steel targets....and they can't understand why the steel doesn't move when they think they shoot them.

What can I say. It’s hard to see at that distance! Makes more sense now.That was you on Sat shooting at the paper backers? I was wondering what was going on. That was my first time shooting there and its pretty relaxed. We got the last hour in on friday before closing time. Dropped $60 in and shot. Our local long range charges $30 a hour.
I used to think the following comment was complete and utter bullshit...until I did it too..... wait until you are breaking clays at 1 mile! ZCO 5-27...was set on 18x and the mirage disappeared...bam....clays broken.What can I say. It’s hard to see at that distance! Makes more sense now.
