I have a latitude/longitude and I want to find another latitude/longitude given a range to the location and the bearing from the latitude and longitude I have.

I have tried using the Haversine formula, which did not work for me because it is for ranges that are in hundreds of kilometers. The ranges that I am looking at are in hundreds or yards or smaller. For example: I have a range and bearing from a given lat long of 300 yards and a bearing of 18.5°

If anyone knows a formula which is more of an approximation (as in it doesnt take into account the Radius of curvature of the earth, etc) it would be greatly appreciated.
