Ruutikangas is one of the largest shooting range projects in the world:

a modern shooting centre covering 92 hectares and featuring state-of-the-art ranges. Ruutikangas will offer professionally designed, first-class shooting ranges for all shooters, from hunters to practical shooters, whether you prefer handguns or rifles.

The ranges feature state-of-the-art electronic scoring systems and lead recovery systems, as well as safety baffles, berms, and other safeguards that fulfil the strictest of standards. A provision for an indoor shooting range will also be made. In addition to a full range of outdoor shooting ranges, the centre will include a restaurant with 400 seats, a car park for 800 vehicles, and a helicopter field – visitors, of course, also have access to all the services offered by the lively Oulu region.

Ruutikangas will be built in the municipalities of Liminka and Lumijoki, near the city of Oulu, Finland. Once completed, the centre will provide facilities for all shooting disciplines, making it possible to organise large international competitions, all the way up to world championship events. Between competitions, the centre will provide high-quality practice facilities for all shooting enthusiasts.

Ruutikangas is conveniently located. The Oulu international airport is a mere 20-minute drive away from Ruutikangas; from Oulu city centre and its hotels, the shooting centre can be reached in 30 minutes via the E4 motorway. In the Oulu region, shooting enthusiasts and their families can also enjoy a wide variety of leisure activities and visitor attractions, such as the world-famous Liminka Bay bird sanctuary.

The project is coordinated by Oulun seudun ampumaurheilukeskus (OSAK) ry, which will also run the centre once it has been completed. The OSAK association comprises the shooting, hunting, and reservist organisations of the Oulu region and has over 3000 members.
