    Guys
    As per title
    Looking for indoor 50m venue near to south west? Looking to do some real pellet v barrel testing with clamped action and indoor to take all the variables out .
    Doesnt have to be a club but anywhere which would allow safe shooting and a few hours over a couple of weekends etc?
    Long shot (excuse pun) I know!:confused:

    We have a 42 yard pipe range that is normally wind free but it is out of commission at the moment, pending repositioning and extending to 50m. Ask again in the spring of 2016.... ;)

    Thanks Rob - I had heard of this place but wasn't sure where it was. Looks interesting!

    It is just off the A35 near Charmouth.

    I've been there twice in the last couple of weeks. They have 25m, 35m and 100m indoor ranges.

    Give them a ring and speak to Richard or Kira.

    They also have 15 acres of woodland, but that's not in use... yet.

    Ahhh, Richard mentioned that did he.

    Done and submitted.

    Those woods are impressive, and your name was mentioned the first time I was there, I used the term legend when referring to you... or it may have been leg end.

    I would be nice to have a SWEFTA open there, although I know Richard has more 'commercial' plans. I am sure there is room to accommodate all interests.
