Very good for load development and 100yd zero. It is two tunnels side by side and there is a shop there for reloading supplies. You will find the owner, Mike very helpful and there is also facility to reload and tweek your loads while there if you take your dies and powder scale with you. I believe there is also a chronograph available if you need one.

I use the range/shop for all my rifle needs. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. You don't say what your going for but if it's just use of the tunnel then make sure you book enough time to allow for barrel cooling. Then shooting benches are set up very well for right and left hand shooters and there is different hight blocks to use to cater for tall &small.

Happy shooting.

Just got back, shocking how much ammo you can get through in 2 hours don't you think, and yes Mike was very helpful got My old pu scope on target in no time, which led to a very enjoyable last hour.

Anyone got a good email for Mike?

I have tried mike@caltonmoorrange.com from the website but it doesn't work and bounces back.

Cheers
