I have been stalking for 15 years or so but this year have decided that the challenge is to hit an 8" target at 1000 yds to see what else I can learn, especially about wind reading.
I have a chambering that will do it with some efficiency, a load that should work pretty well and the right scope for the job. The problem is where to go to try and put it all together.
Based just outside Chelmsford in Essex I'm not sure there is much within an hours drive of me which would be convenient. I could join the NRA and go to Bisley, but went there some years ago as a guest and found the whole thing a bit intimidating. I wondered if anyone knew of a friendly club with members that were happy to help and had a range that stretched to 1000 yds that wasn't't too far away from me.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
Clubs wise the Grove Small arms Club use Barton Road just off junction 12 M11 near Cambridge which I guess would be about an hour, they normally shoot 800, 1000 and 1200 yards once a month. As for calibres is look at anything 6.5/.260 .
