Well since the ranges allow high powered rifles a Mauser, SKS, and Mosin I think would suite you pretty well. That being said you might find military surplus firearms to be very fun to shoot and interesting to study/read on.

5.45x39 Russian is about the cheapest you will find if you can find a rifle chambered for it. AK's and I have seen some AR's. $299x2160 delivered by AMMOMAN.COM
You can buy a Mosin for about $100-150 and ammo is fairly reasonable. Russian made 223/5.56x45 is still reasonable but usually dirty. Same story for Russian 7.62x39.

Is there anything I should stay away from/look for when it comes to The surplus rifles?

check out the Mosin-Nagant rifles, the ammo is reasonable and the rifles can be fairly accurate. as soon as i find one in my area or can order one, i'm going to add one to may collection.
