The St Charles range is situated on Saskatchewan Ave. West, just outside Winnipeg, west of the Perimeter Hwy.

The range may be accessed through the Assiniboia Downs parking lot and the roadway running behind the Assiniboia Downs Grandstand. Proceed north past the grandstand and follow the gravel road to Saskatchewan Ave. West. Turn left on Saskatchewan Ave. West , go approximately 500 yards to the west, and turn right over the train tracks to enter the Range.

We have the use of the range by kind permission of Department of National Defense, 17 Wing Winnipeg. The ranges we shoot are from 300 m - 1000 yds using DCRA/NRA targets and some metric Palma targets.


Shooting season normally starts at the end of April and finishes in October. We shoot most Wednesday nights from 6-9 pm and Sundays 9am-2pm. All days and times are subject to range availability and weather conditions permitting. Check schedule notification email or telephone before you travel.
