Thread: Scope Zeroing in Co. Durham?

    Scope Zeroing in Co. Durham?

    Can anyone recommend a range or shooting ground (or anything else) in the Durham area that I can use to zero and check zero of my scope? There are a few small bore clubs around but not much in the way of full bore clubs. Also, I don't really want to join a club as I'm not into target shooting, I just need somewhere I can occasionally check for zero. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers
    Col

    The only ranges I can think of are all military ones - I zero on my lease and choose the time that will cause least disturbance.
    You could join the Three Counties Sporting Club which shoots at Ponteland on a monthly basis, generally at 100 and 200 yards. Let me know if you are interested in the club and I'll pm the club secretary's details.

    Cheers dodgyrog, Details would be good if I can't find any non membership locations.

    Co 1 why do you say that you don't want to join a rifle club because you aren't into target shooting. I think you may have the wrong impression of rifle clubs. The majority of the members of the club that I belong to are sporting rifle shooters or stalkers who use the club for zeroing, load development and shooting practise.

    I'm not saying that all clubs are similar but I wouldn't dismiss the idea totally out of hand. Also you could find that annual membership is far cheaper than the occasional hour a few times a year on a commercial range.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Three Counties fee is 60 pa - training to get the MOD certificate of competency will be a requirement
    A lot of stalkers use the club as well so a good place to meet people
