Roundhouse 100y to 1,500y Long Range Day & THLR Proficiency Shoot

Recommended Posts

On Friday 29th December I will be offering my yearly opportunity to escape the festivities and extended family for the day!...

For the first time at The Roundhouse, you will have the option to qualify for the THLR Long Range Proficiency Test. Your first attempt is free, subsequent attempts cost £10 per time. Funds raised go directly into improving the targets available. Official THLR patches will be issued to those successful!
Considerable upgrades have very recently been underway at The Roundhouse; increasing the diversity of longer range targets on offer and the 'splash zones' around them. You can now expect over twenty different steel targets beyond 600 yards; ranging from 20" disks, IPSC's & roe deer right through to Fig 14's and 5" gongs.
Also in the event of moderately bad weather (ie. heavy rain), there are now covered benches and prone firing points, enabling shooting from 100 - 950y in the dry.
Timings for the 29th
  • 08:45 - Safety Briefing
  • 09:00 - Steel and other reactive targets will be available from 100 to 950 yards.
  • 12:00 - 12:30 Lunch (hot pasties & mince pies included)
  • 12:30 - 13:00 THLR Long Range Proficiency Test re-shoot
  • 13:15 - 15:00 Steadily transition back between three firing points, with reactive targets available at 900 - 1,500 yards.
You are welcome to arrive anytime until 11.00. Please make yourself know to Tiff and you will be given a short briefing before you can shoot.
THLR Long Range Proficiency Tests will be conducted at approx. 585 meters, between 09:00 - 09:30, with re-shoots possible at 12:30 - 13:00.
Booking

The range fee is £75, with places limited to 24 people. Booking strictly in advance & you will be notified when the day is fully booked. Please contact me for bank details:

roundhousefirearms@gmail.com

Accommodation
Should you wish to extend your break, basic bunkhouse accommodation is available at The Roundhouse for £10 p.p.p.n or for really hardy individuals camping at £5 p.p.p.n. There are also many excellent sporting hotels & b&b’s in the local area - advanced booking recommended!

Additional Information

Two .308 win range rifles suitable to 1,200 yards are available. If required, please advise upon booking.

Ammunition and reloading components from Hornady, Lapua, S&B, RWS, Geco, Norma, PPU & Magtech can be provided. Please pre-order by November 15th.

As usual, please come prepared for all weather, as it is relatively exposed moorland terrain, so can be a good few degrees colder than lower areas.

Should the weather forecast be truly apocalyptic 72 hours out, the day will be cancelled with entry fees transferred to a future event of your choosing.

If low cloud / zero visibility or thunderstorms prevents shooting all day, the entry fees will be equally transferred.

I look forward to seeing you there,

Tiff

No, not at all...The Roundhouse project has come a long way since the early days nearly a decade ago. It's been many years since this was a requirement.

 

The only days I hold that require 'field shooting', i.e. 'zeroing over land' is the RRC. Even then 'open' or 'closed' field shooting is perfectly acceptable.

 

Should you require any further clarification on this particular point, please drop me a line via email or phone.

 

Many thanks for your interest,

 

Tiff

So rifles conditioned for club/target use only could be used? Or am I reading that incorrectly.

 

And if that's the case, what about the likes of .338LM?

Yes, that is correct (the same as other providers in the industry i.e. WMS, Orion etc). For anything above .30 cal please contact me directly (phone or email) and I'll accommodate, where possible.

Tiff, did you receive my email regarding the day?

 

Hello, just returned from a weekend at the Roundhouse (v.limited internet...), but sorry it hasn't come through. Only emails regarding this shoot that are unanswered, were received today at 11.24 & 20.10  (will reply to those shortly after dinner). 

Please could you resend to roundhousefirearms@gmail.com

Many thanks, 

Tiff
