Few options passed 100 yards

Hi everyone! I'm a new member here and I'm new to long range shooting. I want to get into it, but the clubs down here where I live are all 100 yards max. I know of the Jim Thorpe public range has a 300yd berm. New Holland has a 600yd range and an equal sized waiting list. Mifflin Co is too far (2.5hrs) and I'm out of options. Where can I shoot? My goal is to find something 500yards this year. I'd appreciate the help!

I was told there was a range near Atglen PA that had a 200 yards plus range.

I lived in Bucks Co for the first 64 years of my life. You will have the same problem finding a place to shoot L/R as you will finding a place (nearby) to fish for tuna, so get used to that.
Years back, maybe 20 or more, I sold a 30x378 to a guy who wanted to try it first.
He belonged to a club in Palm which is just west of Quakertown where we could shoot to 500 yds. They had steel targets at several distances out to the max at 500.
He kept asking me how many clicks to add and I kept answering by telling him how high to hold and not worry about dialing at such close distances with that gun.
But that's not really what he wanted to hear. He did buy the gun however.
I also fish and spend much more time doing that than shooting and L/R hunting. So when I could, I moved to where I could do that with more options available, and I drive 1200 miles each way to where I hunt and shoot L/R. I was on Okeechobee yesterday and got invited back
today. Life is full of decisions, the next one for you is the Pike Co decision.
