    The discontinued shooting past the berms at least 10 years ago due to concerns with lead getting into the wetlands beyond the berm and possible expensive environmental radiation. They also shortened the handgun range from 100 to 50 yds for the same reason.

    great range and very friendly RSO's - don't use google maps as it will give you a location many miles north - the range is actually around the 94 mile marker of the Park highway, on the east side of the highway - highly recommend this range, range steel at 300, 500, 800 and 1000 IIRC.

    Make sure you check the events page on the website. They sometimes close the 1000yd range for long range training courses.

    The snowshoe gun club Between Kenai/Soldotna now has a 1,000 yard rifle range that members can use.
    Check their website to learn how to join.

    Is one able to use this range when not doing the competition? I'm new to long range shooting and would like to practice before competing. My wife is ex military.

    Actually tried to PM you, think your box might be full.

    This shoot sounds perfect, in terms of the slow fire. I would assume that its all single loaded fire as well? Would muzzle brakes not be allowed like the other shoot? I'll have to look at your schedule, have to head out of town this weekend but would like to catch a similar shoot.

    Couple questions though,,On the other shoot you posted about, it mentions mag capacity. Do I need a firearm that can hold 5 in the mag to compete?
    check http://www.nrahq.org/compete/RuleBoo.../hpr-index.pdf for the rules of F class, if the is the discipline you wish to pursue

    if muzzle breaks interfere with the other shooters, that could be a problem...but we have had them on on the mixed bag shoots like this one and the fun match on summer solstice, check with Mark bout that...

    Slow fire course of fire does not require a repeater. Slow fire matches are all fired single load.

    Hope taht helps. Come shoot.

    Seems like it would just take a good backstop and a out of the way place. Pm me if you have any suggestions. I'm looking for places within Reasonable driving distance from anchorage

    Thanks for any feedback
    There will be a Mid-Range match on Saturday, April 23 at the Ft.
    Richardson Pedneau Range. Sign up time will be 8AM to 8:30AM. This will be a 60 shot for record match with unlimited sighters. The match fee will be $20.00 for annual ARC members or $25.00 for one day members. Open
    chamber indicators will be required and will be available for $1 each.

    There will be 20 shots for record at 300, 500, and 600 yards all slow fire prone. For the mid-range prone category you must shoot off a sling but you can use a scope or "Any Sights". F class & F-TR use bipods.
    The Black Powder Cartridge shooters are invited too. All the disciplines have a mid-range format and this makes for a good multi-discipline match. Everyone is required to sign up in the parking lot adjacent to Pedneau. I have attached the Hold Harmless form that the Army is requiring everyone to sign. Please print one for yourself and bring it. You only have to sign it once for the year and the club keeps them.

    The Army has tightened the rules on bringing firearms onto the base.
    Because Pedneau is not on the main base, we do not have to worry about them. If you go through the main gate you must register all firearms.

    The Army range control has taken a firm stand on range rules. There will be no personal vehicles other than the emergency designated vehicle on the Range. So, either you have to carry your equipment or put it in the emergency vehicle.

    Hope to see you there!
