500 yard range for HP Rifle matches

Good afternoon. Our club has a 500 yard range and we shoot reduced F Class and NRA High Power Rifle matches. To be honest, I hate the 500 yard target, but it is what it is. It does not seem to be any easier to hit than the 600 yard target, but it just feels different. You should try a few matches at 500 before you get too put off by the distance differences. Even at the lowly 500 yard line there can be significant wind effects. It is hard to tell much difference between the 2 distances, at least for me. Our club is the Southern Indiana Rifle & Pistol Club in Borden, Indiana. We shoot 500 yard practice days the first Saturday of the month March through December. We charge $5 per person to help with the range expenses, and you do not have to be a member to attend. Everyone is welcome to try their luck, with any rifle that you can haul to the line. We shoot everything from .223 to .50 BMG. Come and join us. DennyMac
