  • BPSC is located approximately 4 miles out of Houston, MO on Highway B. On the map, that is approximately half way between Houston and Raymondville. If you are driving from Rolla southbound on 63 you turn LEFT on Highway B at the bottom of the hill before crossing the bridge at the edge of Houston. Coming from Cabool northbound on 63 you go through Houston and turn RIGHT on Highway B after crossing the bridge, and before going up the hill. Pretty hard to miss. BPSC will be on the Right side of the roadway. Look for a large timber-frame sign on the right (south side of road).

When shooting steel, there is a restriction on caliber, muzzle velocity and type of bullet. There are no restrictions with paper. There is more info on all of this below – MAKE SURE YOU READ IT

Zeroing should be relegated to the 200-yard range. There is a fixed target frame at 100 meters (not yards) so it’s perfect to verify zero for AK’s. Then there are the mobile frames and another fixed frame at 200 yards.

Ammo restrictions:

There are caliber, muzzle energy, and bullet type restrictions on our steel. No armor-piercing, green tip, or steel core. No large magnum calibers over .30 caliber and no more than 3,000 ft/pounds of energy at the muzzle. On our 3-gun course, we don’t allow buckshot, slugs, or AP rounds. Bi-metal bullets like those that Tula loads are okay. We don’t really have a caliber restriction on the 3-gun course so we take it on a case by case basis. We don’t allow rounds like the .22 TCM because they crater the steel pretty bad. You can shoot the paper targets with the plywood backing with anything you want.”

NO 7N6 OR STEEL CORE/TIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If anyone can head over to BPSC on Thursday afternoon to help prep/set up, it will be much appreciated. It will also save us a lot of time on Friday!!
