    Hi
    Reply to both questions.
    Feel free to put on any forum.
    Redmist we do have a few that come from your area the average amount of shots taken in the day is over 100.
    to explain abit, there is no set round and no limits on what you shoot quantity wise. the day is up to you to choose what you would like to fire at and what you will get the most from.
    The longer range stuff seems to be popular but bullet placement is not as good as these are metal reactive targets.
    The animal image targets are the best for the bullet placement, they are all set out at unknown distances from 60 to 200 yards. (just like the real things)
    the woodland shoot gives the chance for shots from 30 to about 100 yards but standing or of sticks (tricky and good practise)
    the running fox is a gravity fed fox target. good fun.
    also 2x 100 yard zero ranges to get you set up for the day.
    potatoes and some other stuff to keep you interested for the day.
    The days are not designed for target shooters who want a designed distance at a set target, we try to encourage and help the sporting shooter to gain practise and zeroing of there rifle and kit in a life like situation.
    Plenty of like minded people to pick brains or advise to.
    some shoot alot more than the average, 350 being the most up to now but looking at the way some of the regulars are going this will go up.
    regards
    Carl
