I will be building a 50 yard Rim Fire rifle Range this Spring. Initial thoughts are for three lanes. They will be covered benches with stationary target frames backed by an earthern burm at least 12 ft hight and 4-6' deep, much like the pistol range. There will be facilities for installing portable frames at 25 yards also. I surveyed the spot today and may also install a 75 yard lane to the outside for sighting in centerfire rifles. They also can be shot at the 50 and 25 yard lines. On initial look it would not be out of the question to also extend the distance out to 100 yards but I already have a permanent bench at that distance. In addition to rim fire rifle, Pistol could also be shot at 25 and 50 yards but without mechanical targets using verbal commands and stop watch for bullseye. Benches will be either 4X4 frames or concrete block construction topped with double layers of Vantech and adjustable stools/benches for seating. There will be storage lockers under roof for shooting gear/targets/frame material. Also lighting would be installed, "Maybe". Due to the length and amount of dirt to be moved may require hiring of a Dozer to make quick work of the job so construction can be started as soon as good weather returns. Progress reports and design with Pics to follow.
