Anyone know of some land where I could set up to sight in at 50 to 100 yds in the Evans or Martinez area. Tried the power line areas and that's a No Go. Any ideas?

No place close I know of. The three ranges I go to are a 1/2 hour to 50 mins away.
Might want to check with the Sheriff dept. I heard they used to let people come sometimes and use their 50 yard range but I do not know if it is true,

Theres a Georgia DNR range near plant Vogtle and a National forest range in South Carolina in Sumter national forest. Both of them are about 50 minutes away.

This is the federal range. The directions are the long way and take more than 50 mins. There is another entrance to Turkey road and is quicker if you have no problem driving down a long one lane dirt road.

The DNR range is the yuhci one. Used to be directions on tthe site but I can not find them on the new one.

Found a map. Hard to read though.

j3_ Thanks, I'll give 'em a try. It still rubs me the wrong way that there is so much forested, and unused, open land around this area, yet it's hard to find a place to shoot. In Ohio, it's just the opposite, at least where I'm from. A lot of farms and people, but much easier to find someone who'll let you shoot (or hunt) on their property.
