    Hey Dave,

    Easiest way (not the quickest) is to go up bartletts creek up the northbank. Local NZDA doesn't have a 100yd range at the mo. PM me if you need a more specific location up bartletts - but you'll find a spot easy enough.

    Yeah, I wish there was a 100yard range close to Blenheim for sighting in rifles and load development. I use a friends set up which is great, but over and hours drive away up a slow driving shingle road dodging logging trucks. One near Blenheim would get so much use. I would have no qualms paying a membership fee or say $5.00-$10.00 each visit.
    I know heaps of guys and a gunsmith that would use it.

    Not even close. Try some local cockies otherwise the waiau river down by my lyford. Just be cautious/carefully as Mason Hill sometimes has stock in it, may pay to pop in and check first.
