Similar range to a 30-30 deer rifle. Most indoor PISTOL ranges will not allow (backstop is not intended to stop rifle ammo) It IS a carbine, EFFECTIVE range about 150 meters. Fired at a 47 degree angle, bullet COULD travel several miles, but no one does that unless defending against hostile aircraft. Any rifle range that permits centerfire rifles should welcome it. Saw a half dozen on my range last weekend. You have just discovered the OTHER half of the hunt- having gotten the rifle, now get a place to shoot! Check w/ local gunshops, the NRA (um- you ARE a member, right?) and your state Rifle Assoc.
