If it was the barrel pic you were referring to steve, then more can be seen at the link below, the 500yd range is used regularly by three local clubs and is rented to other clubs from outwith the area to defray costs. Being a member of two of the local clubs I can shoot here on occasion up to three times a week, it's only 15-20minutes from my door. Have seen people shoot black powder pistol from the hundred yard firing point, Smoke poles and lever guns are popular as well, some guys shoot .50 Sharps from the 500yd with good results. For BP pistols, long barrel revolver, long barrel auto pistol and lever guns we mainly use the nearby Navy bases pistol range which is full bore certified, good for chronying target rifles etc, we also have a smallbore indoor range.
I think tyres would provide better sound damping but would have to be left insitu. It maybe the case that the barrels will be done away with as it has long been proven that the main complainants property actually suffers more noise from the highway than the range but in the interest of being good neighbours we try to reduce the noise, almost everybody has silenced rifles anyway if they want to us them. http://www.fifecentrefire.org.uk/
The 1200yd range is about somewhere between an hour and half away and is generally acknowledged to be perhaps the second most tricky range in the world due to the wind conditions created by the hills, the foremost windy range is in New Zealand, the name escapes me at the moment. The electronic scoring systems make competitions more interesting for spectators who can watch what is happening, I believe the US F Class team is due over shortly to shoot again.http://www.westatholl.org.uk/
