A PERSONAL RANGE question
Not sure if this is the right place but it is 'training' so here it goes...
I want to get others thoughts on my set-up for a personal range at home.
- only used for shotgun firing (no slugs) and handguns. 22,38, 9mm, 45acp.
- backstop construction- hay/stray bales, single thick, 8 ft. high, 12 to 16ft wide.
-distance from muzzle to target- 10 to 20 yards.
- large 100 acre field behind with no concern for "hitting" others but i simply don't want my rounds going off my property.
my concerns are do ya think bales of hay will stop a bullet?
especially after they have been saturated with rain and snow for a while.
would the weathering make them better or worse bullet catchers?
honest opinions appreciated.
on a side note does/has anybodybuilt or thought about building a moving target? like a silohuette target on a string to practice shooting while moving.
just curious how this might be made to work
