What Ammo Can You Shoot at an Indoor Range?
If you’re looking for an indoor shooting range, you’ll want to know what type of ammo you can use. Some indoor ranges have bullet traps. Bullet & Barrel’s Guntry Club offers “serious entertainment” and other “serious games.” Read on if you aren’t sure which type of ammunition you should use.
Green tip ammo is not allowed at indoor ranges
Green tip ammo is prohibited at indoor ranges because it can cause damage to steel targets and backdrops. Green tip bullets can also stray and cause more harm than regular bullets. While this type of ammo may be cheaper than ordinary bullets, they can also draw attention to a range’s unmet safety regulations. Here are some reasons why green tip ammo is not allowed at indoor ranges:
Steel backdrops can be damaged by bullets fired from a green-tip bullet. Even if they miss the target they can travel through the backdrop to continue the trajectory. This makes green tip ammunition an unsafe practice ammunition for indoor shooting ranges. This ammunition is legal to have in the U.S. however it should not ever be used at indoor shooting ranges. Indoor shooting ranges are at risk from green tip ammunition.
Bullet traps can be used indoors.
Bullet traps are used to intercept projectiles in tight spaces. While many indoor shooting ranges have bullet traps that are designed to catch flying bullets, others are designed to prevent them from reaching a target area. You can either build a bullet trap in a new structure or convert an existing one. It is important that you determine the building size before you purchase a bullet trap. Also, make sure to choose enough space to fit the trap.
Bullet traps can save both time and money. They are modular and connect by a knife-edge connector. They are smaller than traditional ranges, and can help you save thousands of dollars on building space. Bullet traps, unlike other types of traps that collect ammunition from the downrange, can capture all rounds fired and make it safe to remove any lead or debris. Bullet traps are a cost-effective and efficient option for indoor ranges of all sizes.
