FWIW, PNTC no longer allows 50s and the 1000yd range only open very limited number of days (typ weekdays.) The road for the action pistol bays runs right through the middle of it so they can't use both at the same time. DelMarva has 500yd but no 338/50BMG there either
I stand corrected

Or perhaps I was mistaken

I thought I called them a couple years back, was told i would have to be a member, then qualify at 500 before going longer

Maybe it was another place

I gave up and never did go back to long ranges because too far from Herndon

That sounds like Peacemaker. I had to join and qualify at 300 and then 500 before they would let me on the 1000 yard range - which was only available on Thursdays. This was a few years ago.

Default Free ammo!

I have a box of 20 Hornady Match 303 British 174 gr boat tailed, hollow point (BTHP) cartridges. Free to a dorkiphus sponsor. Rifles are gone and I don’t need them as paper weights.....
