    Long Range Gong shooting

    Hi there,
    Are there any area's close to the Tauranga/ Te Puke area that cater for Long Range Shooting especially at gongs. I am new to this type of shooting with 300 yds being long range in the past ( still is) but it would be nice to link up with like minded people to learn a few tricks.
    Cheers Brian

    This is the first time I have shot at steel gongs. We shot at 400, 650, and 900 yards and we managed hits at all ranges. 900 yards is a long way for my first time at it but was surprised to get a hit and several near misses 400 and 650 yards were better than I thought they would be.
