The Chippewa range is one of the oldest in the USA. It was here that George Kelbly, Walt Berger, Nelson Berger and many other icons of Benchrest got their start. The picture below shows a peaceful range in the early morning hours. Don't be fooled ....this range has humbled many shooters over the years. The second photo is also a morning shot taken at Kelbly's on one of the practice day. The extreme left end and the right end of this range is justifiably feared by many shooters. James

Mark, I love ya, man, but your sense of "middle" is skewed about an hour and 45 minutes to the northeast.

sorry, seems in the middle when you drive it...
super range, Great People..and if you look at the schedule there is a shoot every weekend,makes it easy to make a few of them for me.
