Anyone out there from SE Michigan?

I've been on the site for a while. I never went in the regional area. I'm looking for some contacts in South Eastern Michigan. Also, if anyone is aware of a 500-1000 yard range around here, that info would be helpful.

    Clinton Twp. I've been trying to get a rig together for a little while now, nothing special. It should be finished in a month. I was looking for a place to get some long range time in after I get my s*** together. A lot of people I talk to around here and the Michigan Sportsmans Forum really frown on the words long range. Is there a range out in your area that you can shoot 500-1000 yds?

    Nope, 200yds is as far as I have here. I was fortunate to have spent the last 6 months in Colorado. I did a LOT of LR shooting (out to 1400yds +) while out there.

    What are you building?

    Clinton Twp is pretty close, we could meet for coffee sometime pretty easily and discuss.

    Like I said it's nothing special. I'm left handed so my out of the box options are limited. I did some investigating, and found out that Savage will build you pretty much whatever you want without charging you through the roof. I am having them build me a left handed 110 FCP-K in .300wm. I'm going to put a Vortex Crossfire 3x32-50 on it. I will shoot it as is for a while. My plan is to send it off to SSS to have a stock put on, and a little smith work done to it.

    That should be a great shooter. Drop me a PM if you ever want to chat.

    Have you checked into DSC (Detroit Sportsmans Congress) it's on Dequindre north of Hamlen road in Utica? I believe they shoot 400-500yds, I was a member there 20yrs ago and haven't been over to the rifle ranges in a long time.

    I live just of Fenton. The longest range out this way is 300 yds at the Durand Sportsman club.
