Gitano,

Now I can probably get you detailed drawings on a pukker tunnel range as I was shown them for a twin tunnel arangement last Sunday. The range owners are considering extending to add 40 lanes at 50 metres to the side of the existing 75M range with the twin tubes built into the 11.2M high backstop for these new 50m lanes . The tubes are 5 feet in diamater pre-cast concrete and are of such a length they weigh 5 1/2 tones each . The tubes will have a backstop of suffcient depth and strength to handle .50 API ammunition as there is an outfit who wish to use it to test such ammunition.

As for distance to ranges well when I lived down south it was a 70 mile round trip to Bisley or the Ash military range complex so that has not changed much .

Oh as far as I am aware the size for the battle peep is 0.200" the hole size of the raised ladder part is around 0.102". I just measured a new No5 BSA made rear sight. These are only calibrated to 800 yards but as I say it's a brand new milled sight and just sitting in my drawer..
