Building a long-range rifle shooting pit

We have developed a home rifle range, and when shooting at distances in excess of 250 yards, it neigh-on impossible to see the bullet holes on a black target.

Instead of digging a traditional pit into the ground, I designed this shooing pit, where the “puller” can sit safely behind a burn.

After each shot, the puller will mark the current hole in red, and paste over the previous shot with either a black or white pasting circle.

We aee starting out with 308 rifles, powerful to hit a target at 1,000 yards, so a safe burn is an absolute necessity.

See our plans for our 300 yard long-range rifle shooting area.
