Today while I was at the range, I talked with the Range Officer who assured me after showing him a copy of your communication with our range that you would be welcome to shoot the 1000 yard range. I found his assurance reassuring. He suggested we, you keep a copy of thread where you confirm shooting on your range at 1000 yards.
One thing I do know is the Range 12 shooters get there early and begin as soon as 8 am, the range open commence firing time arrives. I don't know but it may be they get there early enough to go to the pits and setup way before 8 am. I suspect you know the drill better than I do. I'll snoop that out.
When do you plan to arrive? I ask because I have a business appointment all day April 24th.
Today I shot my Rem 783 on the 50 yard line. I felt I need to zero because on last use I dropped the gun on cement. I managed to shoot 7 rounds when suddenly I couldn't load and lock a round. A peak inside the trigger guard and I notice the square piece of metal that is pushed to free up the bolt for removal was not in place--it was about 1/4 inch recessed from its proper location. I'll tinker with that tonight.
