I don't have a pic of the "range" i've been using; one of my nephew's buddies has some family land with some oil leases on it. I like this one particular site that has been dug out of red clay, so i'm surrounded by 30' red clay cliffs on all sides but the way in (has ramp/road). It is near the Leaf river.
The mountain in the background is Mt. Lassen, which is a volcano. The rocks came from it when it blew millions of years ago. Prior to it blowing it was the largest mountain on the face of the earth, Mt. Tehama. You can still see the remnants of Mt. Tehama today in the foothills around Mt. Lassen.

Most of the area east of Redding, CA has rocks like that on it. Many people in the area sell them for ridiculous prices to people who want fireplaces, gateways and fences made out of rock. We've had several bids on ours, but I don't want the ground torn up.

We have rock fences on and around that property from old homesteads and ranches which date to the mid to late 1800s.

Another one. It is 85 yds straight across, so 100 is doable at an angle.

Matt, I'm loving your land. It looks like all the dez around the 395 on the way to Mammoth. Miles and miles of lava rocks strewn about.

Here are a couple of angles from the same hill, where we shoot. Each one is good to 1,000 yards. This same area has a couple of lanes that can go 2,500+, which works out well with a couple of friends who have .50's. The home grown target plates are 6"x12". The deep divots are from close range rifle rounds. The splashes are from rifle rounds after 400 yards. The plates hold up very well, and get a lot of abuse.

That is a great set up! Looks like some nice hardware too! Keep sending them down range.
