    I don't know how near or far it would be for you, but Camp Grayling has F-Class out to at least 600yds - not sure if it goes further. Lodi Wisconsin has back to 1200yds and hosts several very big matches every year (specifically the Midwest Palma match in June/July).

    Get ahold of your local state rifle & pistol association; they should have a Highpower Rifle program contact person that can steer you to the right ranges and matches.

I have tryed for about a year and a half to find a club in this area with no luck they eather act like there poo dosent stink or they dont have a range to shoot on there just a good old boys club !!!! Some where to go to get away from the family ! I wont a place that the family is a big part of the club and they work at trying to do something for the comunity !!! That type of club is hard to find !!!! Anyway nuf crying hope to talke to you more !!!!!

    Tony,

    I used to live in Grand Rapids area and know that there is a large contingent of serious hi-power shooters in Midland and Cadillac. Do a search for NRA Hi-power matches and then the contact persons. Find them and then call them. Cadillac is good to 600 and I think the Midland range is to 600 also. And I think there is another range at one of the guard sites in either battle Creek or K-zoo.

    Soon long range precision shooters can stay in Michigan to test their skills year round at our own 1000 yard range at the Marksmanship Training Center. Being built and designed by/for professionals, but will also open to the public. Please sign up at www.MarksmanshipTrainingCenter.com to receive up-to-date information regarding this project in our newsletter.
    PS: Maybe, just maybe a few F-Class comps too.
