Buffalo range in Ottawa https://www.buffalor...ootingpark.com/
and of course ASC.

Maybe check Article 2 if you really want an indoor range. Some may be rated for it but dont allow. I'm behind a proxy at the moment blocking almost every gun related site so cant check much.

Buffalo Range is probably your best bet. They have both 50 and 100 yard positions.

ASC is the absolute best but they’ve reached the membership cap and now have a waiting list.

All the indoor ranges don't have a problem with 308, GAT, Maxon, OnTarget, etc.

Point Blank in Hodgkins allows 308. Indoors, but the range is only 25yd long.

To disarm is to consent to slavery.

I second Range at 355. I just sighted in a .223 and .308 AR there a couple of weeks ago. 25 yards only, but I was able to get everything squared away.

They are possibly the closest, but in the past, they would not allow shooting while seated using a rest. To me, that is essential when sighting in a rifle. I usually go to On Target for that reason.

McMiller is a great outdoor range. Next time I go, I am planning to try out the 100/200/300 yard rifle range.

I used my .308 at Range at 355 without an issue.  It's a bit short for a .308 with scope but gets the job done.

Range at 355 has a rest that you can rent for $5, or for free if you're a member. I'm 6'1" and didn't have any issues hunching over, so I didn't use the chair that they alao have.

I could use a local indoor range that allows 7.62, too - just to sight in a few rifles at 25 yards on 25/200 targets.
