    Somewhere to sight a rifle in and do load development in Auckland

    Hi guys

    A bit of a long stretch here but I live in the midst of the big smoke

    I often need to sight my rifle in probably once every 3 months because of load development, work done on the rifle or just reassurance before a big trip.

    The NZDA range is a bit of a pain due to the enforced entry and exit times.

    Does anyone know of anywhere else that's a bit more convenient? Don't mind a fee or koha. Just would be nice to be able to shoot out to around 100m for an hour or two.

    Thanks in advance
