Kevin shared some beautiful photos of if his Remington 700 .338 Lapua at a picturesque range in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. He wrote ..

Shooting for the first time at my new rifle range in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, in Alberta. Edson Fish and Game association, which sports among other shorter pistol, rifle, and shotgun ranges, a 1 mile long rifle range with steel set at various spots downrange.

I was out that day shooting my customized Remington 700 MLR .338 Lapua, which has been seen on this blog before.

It wears a Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56mm on a 20MOA SPUHR ISMS mount. Brake is an American Precision Arms Fat Bastard, which I can not say enough good things about. Rifle is bedded. I run an Atlas bipod, a custom built cheek riser underneath the stock bag, and a SAP two round velcro holder on the side of the gun by the action for fast reloads.

The view of the mountains is what you see from the firing line when you turn around 180 degrees from the range. One of the most beautiful clubs I have ever had the pleasure to shoot at.

Thanks Kevin! I wish I was out there, not at my computer right now.

        Yeah and you get dust in your face in the middle of a friggin’ downpour. Been there, experienced that. AAFB 1966.

      -From MidOhio- Elevation changes like that?

        SWOhio native, elevation changes over 100′ impresses the hell out of me.

    Looks like a bad a$$ range, I’m jealous.

    And here I am, stuck in the American Midwest plains, dodging tornadoes 🙁

    What an awesome range! Loving the combination of forest, mountains and gentle undulations!

  • Wayneregina

    I’ve been to that range a couple of times, and it is truly a beautiful place to shoot. There are quite a few ranges in both Alberta & British Columbia right in the mountains; it makes it a bit hard to concentrate on what you’re doing with that kind of scenery around you

    It was a fun day at the range for sure. After finishing shooting out to 1300 meters (couldn’t hit a mile, winds were gusting about 50kph, gotta love the challenge of mountains eh?), we went over to the mountains and climbed the foothills of the rockies. Not a bad day all in all I think, haw haw!

    Wow.

    Damnit, I hoped I would have found a new range to shoot at, but I’m in Calgary.
