    Unhappy Shooting Ranges near STL.

    I tried a google search, but the results were... less than desirable.

    I know there are a few conservation-run ranges, namely Busch wildlife, but those are either an hours drive from st charles or they close at 430 (busch).

    There's gotta be some privately run ranges around st charles. I just can't find them.

    Seems they only have ranges up to 25 yards, and they charge $20 an hour for range use... while busch has crappy hours thye only want $3 and have ranges out to 100yds.

    I'm really lookin for an outdoors long distance place.

    Up near Silex is Logan but only 75 yards deep.

    Rifenscnider or something like that, hits the 100 mark, that is out off highway N in warren county about 30 mins from N and 40

    Both are free but can be real busy.

    Bench Rest is fantastic but members only so you would need to join, it is in Wright city.

    thats the list except the one that is more or less only open sporadically in earth city aka bridgeton but it is hardly ever open except near deer season.

    Other than that it is pretty much 25 yard pistol ranges indoors.

    For "LONG RANGE" you want Bench Rest Rifle Club, up to 600 yards!
    Google it for information. It's a world class facility.
    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    Just googled that range and holy cow that is a nice range! Not too shabby distance wise either for a good day of shooting. Might try and hit up this place!

    Wow, 600 yards, farther then I'll ever hit in my mosin, but I DID want to try it at 200

    Thanks guys.

    I've been to Logan, its good for rifles, bad for pistols unless you have your own stand.

    I've actually mounted a scope on it, so I would like to get SOME practice with it at longer ranges. If for no other reason than to get a feel for what thats like.
