    Place to shoot in BOP?

    Iím looking for a place to shoot at least 100m as Iím needing to re zero and collect some DOPE at different ranges if possible. I was at the Tect Park range near Tauranga to find ammo the new rifle likes and now that that is done, I need to zero for hunting and would like to collect some data.

    Anyone got a farm, or know of a place to shoot?I donít want to wait until the end of feb for the next range day, Iíd like to be hunting before then. DOC land seems sketchy as itís used by a variety of people. Thoughts anyone?

    Cheers!

    Got a place in north Canterbury less than two hours away.... I can see your point but some of us have no choice, I do make sure that it is an area with no one else and not during the 'golden hours'

    When I come across some camp sites on DOC land you would swear it was a rifle range. Everything lying around is ventilated.
