no range that I belong to. My club only has a 50 yd range. There are other clubs in my area but they donot let non members shoot & to join them they want way to much money. As for the 22lr I have a Savage Mark II already & was looking to get something with a little more punch. I do not hunt either, atleast not yet, I really do not have an interest in it.
Dicks also has the .223 version which if I do get one I will pick up that.
