SW Pa 1000yd range?

Any ranges that go out to 1000yds? My friend said he heard about one near Chicory mountain but we can't find any info. I am from Greensburg and we have a 500yd range but would like to shoot farther every now and then.

There are no 1000 yard ranges that I know of at any club in your area, many use old strip cuts to shoot at rocks but no formal range. Closest would be one in Ohio near Cambridge... Jackson Twp sportsmen, Chickoree Mt..is only 500 yards but is extremely nice with great benches, meetings 1st & 3rd Mondays around 7 o'clock.

Thanks 6-dasher my buddy got some wrong info on the distance at Chickoree Mt. Bummer that's not far from us. How far is Ridgeway, or any up near Benezette?

Slim do you have a name?

What do you need to know drift ? Anyone can join, all you got to do is go to a meeting and pay your $20-25 bucks and the combination to the loc is on your card..meetings 1 & 3 Mondays at 7:00.... But it's only to 500... Ridgeway has a much bigger range, past 1000...they also have all types of shooting matches...more expensive and must be an NRA member..not sure about meeting, but they have a major website with about everything needed on it...alright tokeep jerbo happy, 40 minute not about an hour, nosightseeing now or first time on the road slow driving...north of Dubois ...

It doesn't take an hour to drive from Dubois to Ridgeway - Binghamton Road.
10 minutes from the interstate to Brockway, another 20 minutes puts you in Ridgeway, another 10 minutes and you can be at the shooting range if you know the shortcuts.

Thunder Valley looks nice, about the same time to Ridgway. Harry Jones is closer, let me know if you think of the one close to the line.

I belong to a 500yd range 2 miles from my house, just looking for farther. My buddy has a camp in Benezette so we can stay at camp after shooting.
