ABOUT BARTON ROAD
This is our nearest long-distance range and a favourite for Grove members who use higher muzzle energy rifles. The range itself goes all the way out to 1,200 yards (nearly 3/4 of a mile)!
HOW TO GET THERE
Barton Road range is located just off Junction 12 of the M11, in Cambridgeshire. (MAP)

WHAT YOU CAN USE
The range limit is 7,000 joules ME. Zeroing at 200 yards is compulsory for high muzzle energy (HME) rifles (those whose muzzle energy is above 4,500 joules).
We shoot at 800, 1,000 and 1,200 yards, in up to six lanes.
At Barton Road, like many of our other fullbore ranges, the whole day is spent outdoors. So, if it pours down, your car is the place to go. Lunch is usually taken on the fly.
Unlike many other ranges, this one does have toilets.
OVER-16s ONLY. PLEASE BRING YOUR SCC, FAC AND PROOF OF MEMBERSHIP.
SORRY, NO GUESTS AT THIS RANGE. GROVE OR OTHER LICENSED CLUB MEMBERS ONLY.
