    rifle range in devon

    Morning gents,

    Are there any full bore rifle ranges in devon that allow stalkers to zero there rifle on there range, the problem I have Is I knocked my scope the other night and now the rifle is off, all the land I have is either unsuitable,6 foot high with maze or to close to the release pens, so I need to find a range that wI'll allow me to do so.
    Cheers
    Ross.

    Try Budleigh Farm as a pay to shoot range if not Devon Rangers are a good club near Braunton , with 50m range, meet most Sundays.Look them both up on the web

    I contacted Budleigh farm today, but they aren't doing anything until next week due to a death in the family, the Braunton one would be to short a range sadly.

    Surely you can find a spot where you can shoot at 50 yards range into an earth bank or other suitable backstop? At 50 yards I'm looking to be hitting the target dead centre.

    I like to zero at 100 yards if possible.

    Depends where in devon - I've zeroed at the Tunnel Target Sports Centre before just over in Dorset. Google it - I can't post links...!

    Bore sighted then shot at short range before moving back to 100.

    It's indoors and a bit damp though, so you can get some heat haze coming off the barrel/mod and fogging the view through your scope. I just took a chance and turned up...they were v helpful but initially a bit dubious about a newly set-up gun.

    How about this one, may be worth giving them a ring.

    +1 this is sound advice. Dead on at 50 is about 1" high at 100 so you are with a . 308 Dead on at 150 and 2" down at 200.
