Default Shooting ranges in Illinois ?

Hi I live in the suburbs of Chicago and I have been looking for gun ranges around here, I know Gat Guns has a range but it's only hand gun caliber allowed including .22lr which is great considering the fact that I only own Armscor M1600 with a bi-pod and Nikon p-22 scope. The range is $20 an hour and its 25 yards which is good for hand guns. Before the scope and the bi-pod I have already put 750+ rounds and its still honestly a better rifle then what I've read reviews online. The point I'm trying to get a cross I want to be able to shoot long distance and or a cheaper range because $20/hour for shooting a .22 is a little crazy IMO. Thank you for looking

Megasports and Rinks are the two I go to because I live in dupage. There was an outdoor range within an hour but is currently closed due to complaints from neighboring businesses. Article 2 in Lombard is another option.

I also agree with the Megasports referral. I shoot every week at
Article II/Gunworld in Lombard IL.
$21/flat range fee. .

Article II/Gunworld is an ok place. The prices of guns there are a bit high, but the lgs's in IL are normally high. I like that you can shoot both pistol and rifle at there range.
