Safety Rules for 300 Yard Berm.
1. The TOP PRIORITY is to assure that no bullets leave the property.
2. Have your rifle zeroed in at 200 yards before advancing to the 300-yard line.
3. The first 3 bays on the right side are to be used for the 300-yard berm. Preferred positions are ①, ②, ③, as marked. This will minimize cross fire and allow 25- and 50-yard targets to be shot from benches farther-right.
4. It is recommended when shooting at 300-yards to shoot from a bench or prone position, only.
5. If you have no idea where your bullet is impacting you need to STOP and move to a closer berm.
6. If you drive down range, park at the 200-yard berm so people see that you are there.
