Where to shoot to distance near Wenatchee
« on: July 26, 2023, 11:53:27 AM »
Just relocated to the Wenatchee area and was wondering if anyone knew of any areas folks practice out past 300 yards? Seems like the local range is just to 100 and Iím trying to practice beyond that. Willing to drive up to an hour or two.

Cheers

Given the trashing going on I doubt many would name their spot. Maybe someone. Best to get out and drive around and find your spot.
Being aware of fire danger too.

The range in chelan goes out to 750 or 1k I believe, and NCW Gun club in east wenatchee has paper boards out to 300 and steel at 450.  Also has a 600 yard range but hit or miss if you can get on it.

Youíre surrounded by canyons, just get some steel and a good rangefinder and go find a backstop a few hundred yards away.
What country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.

This is true but only to 300 till October. After fire season the steel is out to 1000. Make sure to sign your waiver.
