Can anyone recommend 200/400y rifle range somewhat near Jax?

Post by L11.11 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 11:34 am

Looking for a decent rifle range that goes out to at least 200y, preferably 400y, that's somewhere in the ballpark of Jax or surrounding counties.

There's a public range in lake city, about an hour drive. There appears to be a long distance range in Ocala called Bradford Sportsmen Farm. Anything else that's good for some load development and whatnot?

Any input would be appreciated.

My brother-in-law has been to Bradford some, it is way closer to Jax than Ocala, closer to Palatka or Starke.

I don't know about 400 yards but Gateway has a 200 yard range:

I believe Gateway Range, off "No Road" has at least a 200 yard for the members. Non members can only use the 100 yard range unless with a member.

What do you mean by ... off "no road" ? Not sure I'm getting what you're saying. Is the member fee reasonable?

Name of the road is "No Road". Believe it's around $130 a year, not including initiation fee of around $100.

Gateway is good for 200 in Jax. Lake City's FREE Public range also goes out to 200

Yea I saw that one, I like free and lake city is about an hour drive, or so, not too bad plus I tend to like the public ranges as long as you don't get the irresponsible kids trying shoot like it's a video game lol, I will check it out. Thanks.

Also appears there's some places in St Aug, seem pretty new. Does anyone have input on these?

Think one is called Ancient City or something?

Set up 200 yards away from a cow pasture in the middle of nowhere...aim for the cow patties...
Couldn’t hurt.

Is the Lake City/Osceola range any better than it was a few years ago? Used to a bit shady and had some downright dangerous shooters. Bullet holes in the bathrooms and such...
