2020 is a train wreck on so many levels, so I know i'm going out on a limb here but are there any known places that support rifle target shooting for lengths greater than 200 yards? Snoqualmie is my choice for 200 thanks to their steel targets at the end of the range, but it seems like there's no options whatsoever beyond that distance. Am I wrong?

Steel distance targets like Snoqualmie does at greater lengths would be ideal, but at this point i'd take anything I could get that is in the 300 - 500 yards range - even if it is private land where if you ask really nicely and bring something delicious they'll let you test that fancy new scope for an hour.

Upper Nisqually Sportsman’s Club if you get a membership. Steel out to 550 for rifle, also has 185 yard range, 50 yard, 100 yard, and 2 pistol bays with dedicated plate racks and steel.

Little pricey to join but 86$ a year after that.

Cascade has a 600-yard range for members, but if you’re not already on the waiting list it’ll be a long time before you become a member.

I’ve read that Tacoma Sportsman’s Club shoots 600 yards occasionally, maybe once a month, but I don’t know more details than that.

Thanks for the heads up!

Are you a member? I need to find an existing member who can get to know me a bit to vouch for me so I can apply for membership. I'm successful family man with a squeaky clean background so I think I can do a video chat or meeting with a member to clear any hurdles if I get that opportunity.

For any club that require a friend that is a member to join.

Best option that is typically what I call a two'fer is shoot matches or go to events at the club.

For you since you want to shoot long distances... Look at one of the long shooting events. You do not need to be a member. And a good way to meet members and/ or get familiar with the club itself and also your end goal of shooting long distances.

Good luck.

Tacoma rifle and revolver does 600 yard matches once a month. They too have a waiting list but it isn't terrible. I am a member there and I really like it because it is hardly ever busy. I've never done the 600 yard match but it is worth looking into! You may not need to be a member.
