Imagine placing a bullet in a 36 inch circle a mile away!
Starting this fall ScatterGun Guests will have the opportunity to do exactly that. Now under construction, our brand new SUPER RANGE will give our guests the opportunity to fire the world's most acclaimed sniper rifle, the Barrett 50 Caliber. Developed during WWII the BMG .50 was a legendary machine gun round.
In 2002 Corporal Rob Furlong of the Canadian Forces fired his .50 cal at an insurgent at the unbelievable range of 2430 meters-7973 feet or just over 1 1/2 miles. It is the absolute record for the longest sniper kill in history.
Under the watchful eye of our professional guide staff guests will be challenged with both 1/2 and a full one mile target.
The SUPER RANGE will feature state of the art electronics that will allow guests the opportunity to actually view a 40 inch monitor and watch the bullet when it strikes the target.
We are very excited to offer this rare and unique shooting opportunity to our guests at ScatterGun in 2011.
The standard 30:06 cartridge (bottom) produces 2000 to 3000 foot pounds of energy. The .50 caliber produces from 10,000 to 20,000 foot pounds of energy! WOW!
Matt McPherson, CEO of Mathews Archery proudly displays his .50. Matt was the first person to hit a one mile target at ScatterGun.
