Ranges in the U.K. where you can shoot your 50BMG rifle
No longer is this the exclusive sport of the very rich, and no longer must the UK shooter venture to the Swiss Alps or the USA to participate in this sport! There are a growing number of UK ranges that the FCSA UK have managed to gain access to that have been approved for 50BMG and usually even larger calibres up to 20mm.
Most of these ranges are anti-tank or Field Firing Areas and as such are very basic, you would need to be a member of the FCSA or a guest before attending, these are not open to the general public.
The FCSA has range licenses for Warcop, Salisbury Plain, Sennybridge and Lydd ranges, and many bookings! If there is a suitable 50cal rated range near to you, and we don't already have bookings on that range then please let us know and we'll make enquiries with the MOD or owner.
We now have access to the Salisbury Plain area 15 and 16 field firing areas! Email Chris for the RV point details, MEMBERS ONLY and its essential that you register your attendance via the online booking system. We have one booking per month at this training area.
