    Anybody here know of any long-range shooting ranges in Michigan? I need a place to practice. All the ranges I know of only go to 300 yards maximum and most only go to 200. As always, all help is much appreciated

    You guys should come down to the Ohio 1000 yard club on the 19 and 20 of July we will be shooting the state shoot at 1000 yards and a 1 mile shoot [​IMG] should be a good time.

    Sabre, Midland has a 600 yard range, you have to qualify to shoot it and have a qualified person it the pit also. I hear Alpena has a new 500 yard range, haven't done any research on it.

    Their is a 500 m range down by Wayland MI and Camp Graying has a 1000 yd range. At Camp Graying they have Palma matches for the Pub.

    Good to see you here...Welcome to Long Range Hunting!

    What ever came of the 338 Lapua and the "funny" shoulder angle?

    LeMay,

    You're correct. I believe there is 1000 yards match at Gaylord. They do have a website but I don't remember the name of it.
    I haven't seen it yet but I saw their website. They also offer silhouette matches as well.

Being built and designed by/for professionals, but will also open to the public.

    Which side of the state are you on? South Kent near Grand Rapids goes out to 500 and I belong to Fennville gun club which goes out to 400.

    I'm in the same city as you. :)
    The place advertised above hints that they are way up north, at least 2-3 hours away.

    They should build it near the Birch Run Outlet Mall. I could spend 5 hours there every weekend, I'd just have to drop my wife off at the mall first.:)

    BWSA on 94 and Range Rd. has 600 yard a couple times a month.
