    Indian Creek Range (Townsend MT) expanding to 2000+ yards

    I haven't been there in a while, but I hear they have put in a 2000 yard target berm, and steel beyond that.

    Looks like there will be a 2000 yard BR style match there in August.

    Yeah, I need to check this out. Might be a good place for an ELR Match or world record event.
