Indiana's Steel Target "Disneyland"

Many of our readers tell us: “I love the challenge of shooting paper in Benchrest, F-Class, or Highpower matches, but it would be fun to get some buddies together and ring some steel at multiple distances.” Well, if you’re in America’s heartland, here’s a place to go. Young’s Longshot Range, in Woodruff, Indiana, is a veritable “Disneyland of Steel”, with a huge variety of reactive metal targets set at yardage-marked berms from 25 to 1000 yards. Indiana’s only 1000-yard facility, Young’s Longshot Range is open 365 days a year. It has outdoor shooting stations (both covered and uncovered), PLUS a heated building with drop-down windows for winter shooting. There’s even a raised 5 meter high platform for prone shooting.

Black Hills .223 with 69gr MKs on Sale

Black Hills makes some of the best .223 Rem ammunition you can buy. Here’s a good deal on .223 match ammo loaded with the very accurate 69gr Sierra MatchKing. Now through June 30, 2007, a box of 50 rounds, item #522299, is just $34.99 at MidwayUSA. That’s $6.50/box off the regular price. This is new ammo, boxer-primed, and reloadable. USER REVIEWS of this product have been very positive, with many guys reporting 1/2 MOA groups or better. Here’s what Daniel F. in Missouri reports: “I shot this ammo through a Rock River Arms AR varmint model with a 16.5″ barrel. I usually shoot Fed GMM but this was on sale so I decided to give it a try. With the Fed ammo I routinely shoot sub 1/2 MOA groups @ 100 yds. My rifle likes this ammo better. I shot three, 3-shot groups. Largest was .46″, smallest was .21″. Great ammo at any price, even better at about $0.80 a round.” NOTE: With this sale, this ammo is now $0.69 per round.
