CSEC News

Here is the latest news from CSEC

LRP Wind Drift Estimator

May 12, 2022: Brian Young, LRP RSO, has worked up a wind drift estimator that has proven to be extremely accurate out to 2,000 yards at the LRP. You can read about it here.


LRP Nears Completion/New Rates 

May 12, 2022: During the summer and fall of 2021 with generous donors, and the efforts of CSEC volunteers the LRP Pavilion and Event “Stats Shack” were built, bringing the LRP/Terrain Park vision as a World Class facility to completion. There are now eight shooting positions each accommodating prone and bench firing opportunities, all under a 3,200 sq-ft building with a 12′ roof overhang, providing protection from sun, rain, and snow. Thirty-five targets out to 2003 yards are available, almost all with electronic flashing-light hit indicators. Public Use, User group, F-Class, and Positional Shooting firing lines as well as downrange wind flags, gun racks, and picnic tables are provided. The LRP Pavilion is wired for electrical outlets, lighting, and electronics  with electrical power rental available. 

WiFi access, power, storage space, additional sound insulation, and a weather station are in the near future plans. 

New rates … 

The vision and goal of creating a World Class long range precision shooting venue (LRP) has always been to provide the public with a rare and unique shooting opportunity at an affordable price. With the added facilities, growth and refinement of the LRP, the cost of operation and maintenance has increased significantly. Raising rates is necessary to cover the increased costs associated with the improvements. The new rates will be as of 1 July, 2022: 

NEW LRP RATES EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2022

*Rates are per 2 hour block of reserved bench time and are per person.

Annual Pass Holder: $12.00

Non-Annual Pass Holder: $20.00

Youth (17 and under): $3.00

Private Party/User Group reservation per day: $250 or $20/person (whichever is greater)

*All Private Party/User Group reservations require a $250 non refundable deposit.

2022 Ammo Availability for Major Matches

January 19, 2022: Cameo has ammo available for purchase over the phone for those of you who either are struggling to find ammo or who wish to simply  take advantage of the convenience of having it waiting for your arrival at the match. Shooters registered for these matches can pre-purchase rounds for the match, based on the round count for the match as listed in Practiscore (plus overhead for misses, chrono, etc.).

Ammo is available for the following matches:

Ammunition will not be available for pre-order until the shooter is registered, and Practiscore has listed the round count.

The match is not providing this ammo, is not responsible for performance of this ammo and does not make any guarantees for performance at chrono. The ammunition is big name factory brand ammunition just like you would buy at a major retailer.

If you wish to purchase ammo, call the range office at: (970) 464-1339 and tell them you need ammo for one of the above-listed matches. Those taking the Leatham/Seeklander classes need to mention that as well for additional ammo allowance.
