Far left is typically the ~400-575yd range.
The right typically has two sets; low elevation around 600-700yds and in front of the tree line is the 900-1050yds you described.
There is also an often overlooked ridge to the left of center that holds a lot of 600-800yd targets. From the range side corner of the pavilion, go to about 11:00 and add 50-75 feet in elevation to the far left targets. The targets are a bit higher, which is why I think a lot of people miss them.
This is an older video, one tier below the pavilion's current location, but you should be able to make out the terrain. Anyways, at :41, behind the shooting bench is the spot I'm talking about. I hope this helps...
ETA- It is also at :51-:52, above the Peacemaker logo.

I need more practice before I do one of the LRC. It is cool that everyone there is friendly and as helpful as possible. I am glad to see this thread got a few people talking about Frontier Days. I plan on going to all of the practices from here on out.

I did one Frontier Day before my first LRC. Prior to that I had only shot long distance one time at Ed Shell's class.
Haven't been to a Frontier Day since then but have shot in multiple LRC matches.
I usually finish closer to the bottom between my caliber choice (.308) and my lack of experience. I learn more every time I'm out there and just try to get better.
Do yourself a favor and just come shoot an LRC. I usually shoot the Friday match with a friend of mine on Squad 2, you're welcome to squad with us anytime.

my friend rbird7282 is being modest. I have talked to him various times and I resect his comments a lot. So, with these places, I assume no 22 Nosler or Valkyrie? I have a Nosler. :/

Thank you my friend. You can certainly shoot those. My friend that I shoot LRC matches with used to shoot a .224 Valkyrie for long range.

I do not think my Nosler will reach quite as far as a Valkyrie. I have a large Athlon scope on it. If you are going to be at the Pub Dog next weekend, I may bring it to show you. It takes a 6.8 cartridge necked down and mag, although that is not the parent. Typical Nosler. lol

I want to learn from others how to correctly shoot at distance..

I have shot on the frontier range several times. My goals are a little different from most of the shooters there. Besides getting in practice at long-range shooting I use the day to verify my zeros. The last time I was shooting one rifle chambered in 308, the other 300 Win Mag. I was verifying the zeros on three different 308 loads, two with 168 TMK, one with 175 HPBT. The 300 Win Mag load used 180 Barnes bullets.

Basically, I range the target with the Leica range finder, adjust the scope, then take the shot. If the shot was good and a hit, the zero is good. If not, work on it. Then repeat with the other loads.

When I was done shooting, I had a chance to talk to one of the other shooters. I noticed that there wasnít anyone shooting 300 Win Mag and I mention I didnít notice to many shooting 308. He said there were probably only a couple of 308 shooters that day. I said I guess they could tell when I fired the 300 Win Mag. He said, oh yet, they could tell.
