Why don't you email the company itself they can probably direct you to something or even send you what you need. I used to do that to NASA and Grumman when I was in college. Thier public affairs departments are are pretty helpful.

Ranges found on the Internet are typically garbage unless they have given context.

One source says 250 nautical miles, one says 367 to 422 miles, and another says 680 nautical miles. Hell, even in GAO reports for the Super Hornet, the range for the exact same mission seems to vary significantly for some reason. Try using the breguet range equation or fuel fractions. Maybe find an e-paper on the subject if you can find one.
