Hi, is there any other full bore (.270 .308 rifles..) shooting ranges or clubs in the uk, other than Bisley shooting grounds?

A little far from you, but I shoot at the Stead Hall indoor Shooting club. Full bore firearms welcome!

There's Barton Rifle Range which is used by Bassingbourne Rifle and Pistol Club which i think is 1500m. Check the BRPC website for guest days as i think it's a military range.

Bassingbourn is only cleared for 22 centrefire. You want Barton Road for anything over that.

http://www.brpc.org.uk is the address for the club.

Short answer though: yes, there are clubs outside Bisley that allow fullbore. I think even Lydd in Kent is possible. I found a .309 Win case there, which I assume did not come from a gimpy.

Hemswell in Lincolnshire is an ex-military range, basic, only 25m, but full-bores abound! A real friendly crew! :good:

There is a rifle club at Mildenhall near Bury st Edmunds.

Not sure how long the range is but a former work colleague of mine used to use it.
