Check out the ranges and matches listed at
http://www.iowahighpower.com/

I suggest NRA Highpower Service Rifle "Across the Course."
Standing, sitting, and prone at 200, 300, and 600 yards with AR15 or M1A.

Or maybe Smallbore Prone or Position with a good .22 at 50-100 yards.

Sounds like you are interested in and equipped for Long Range, either Any/Any (rifle/sights with sling, coat and glove) or F-class (scope and bipod allowed.)

I shot 1000 yard F-class at Ft Benning this past weekend alongside conventional and Palma rifles. Fun, challenging.

I will leave the research on locations to you. Start at:
