Does anyone know the longest range in Vic and where it is? It’s hard to get solid info on this with a Google search.
I know Mildura has a 2km range, and I had it in my head that Mildura was only 2-3 hours away. It turns out that it’s 6 hours away. I have 2 kids, I’d be lucky to get there once every 2 years.
My local range, Little River is 500m. Is there anything in between within 2-3 hours of Geelong that’s longer?
My plan was to get a 6.5 Creedmoor with the aim being to get into target shooting and eventually long range. However, if I’m only going to ever be able to shoot up to 500m the vasy majority of the time, is there any point going a 6.5CM over a .308? As far as Ballistic’s go, they’ve very similar up to 500m, the 6.5CM doesn’t really start to drastically out perform it until over 750m.
Does a 6.5 still group better than a .308 at shorter ranges or are the differences on paper marginal?
They cost about the same for ammo here, but as far as I know .308 has much better barrel life.
