north side sportsmans association has 300. lawrence county sportsman has 600. beaver valley rifle and pistol has 300+. greensburg sportman has 500. however all are members and guest only. you need to join or know a member. only a couple of public ranges (pgc) in pittsburgh area.

some, like Northside Sportsmen's Club in Warnnedale, forbid 50 cals if that is your intent.

Were are you located. We have a real nice small club here in Northern WV. But we are small town guys. The range is a 1,000 yard range. It is less than 5 minutes from my house. Tom.

Come straight east on Rt. 22, about 50 miles, Right on top of the Chickeree mt range, just to the east of Blairsville is the Jackson Twp. range, you can see it right from the four lane, it's out to 500 plus with metal gongs in place and perfect benches..there's usually someone around every Sat..

I live near greensburg. I've been to greensburg sportsman a few times to shoot trap and skeet, didn't know they had that size rifle range though.
