    I don't know? Here's a link to the website with contact details, give them a call. They're a spot on, I phoned last night and spoke to Colin to find out when it started, he's got all the details on it.

    I wont be there as I have a prior commitment this weekend at another range.


    However, if you are not a member of BDS, please come along anyway (bring your rifle, ammo, bolt, FAC) introduce yourself with the RCO or at the caravan (which will be on site) then someone will take you around.

    Ther zero range and DSC1 test are back to back ranges and used at the same time so there's no limit to the amount of time you can spend on either - there is a small fee per entry.


    Dont forget to take waterproof clothing, the forecast is wet.


    If you havnt a 4WD, I suggest you park just off the road and walk doen to the road - though there will be members there to assist if anyone gets into difficulties - basically you are driving over a couple of fields to get to the range - it can be muddy when wet.

    Everyone is welcome BDS or not, you nver know, you may leave a member

    Had a cracking day out at the BDS NW Branch Shoot. Excellent chance to through a few rounds at the 100 yrd target and test some home loads on the zeroing bench. The weather stayed good, the odd shower, nice cup of tea and a bit of craic. The DSC Level 1 set up was excellent, brought back all the nerves from my test day!! A great set up and good location.

    The day was very well organised, thanks to all involved.
