    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.

    Hi there,

    There is a range in Washtenaw county with a 600 yard range.

    WSC - Home Page

    Never went there, I cannot figure out from there homepage if they actually let you shoot 600 during practicing sessions. Sounds like they let you only shoot 300 yards on Wednesdays.

    However, if you find out please share.
