Where to take a .50?

I havenít been in MD in ages, but Iím briefly back and just reclaimed a few rifles from storage. Iíve got some friends who want to shoot .50, but I hear DelMarVa doesnít allow that caliber anymore. Where can I take the big guns out for some fun?

few years ago, 340 defense, between berryville va and charles town wv allowed 50's and even had a rental rifle in 50. could shoot out to 400yds. i'd call to confirm though.

maybe also call the cove in gore, va west of winchester off of rt 50.

Contact Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV. The website is slightly ambiguous regarding what is/is not available to non-members and what calibers are permissible. http://www.peacemakernational.com/

AGC let’s you shoot .50, but the ranges are short distance and you’d need to be a member or a guest of one

At 100 yards you won't need a spotting scope to see where you're hitting on the target.

Afghanistan has plenty of places to shoot a .50 cal. They even provide free moving reactive targets!

I thought the rules stated you couldn't shoot anything as big as .50 I'll have to take a second look
