A buddy of mine (retired ATF agent) has one that I play with from time to time. The only problem is he only has 400m to shoot on!!!! That's kinda like driving a Ferari throough a Walmart parking lot....just doesn't do it justice.
Yes, I know. I bought a section of property for a place to go shooting, but at only 30 acres it was a bit small even for my .308 and now my son is putting up a greenhouse and stuff on it. That is the best thing about the mountains, you can have a REALLY good backstop with only a few acres with which to deal.
I am always a little concerned with being too close to a backstop with anything with any "uummmp" since I lost a friend at Ft. Campbell. He was supervising the filming of a firing exercise from the side of the firing range when he was struck by a ricochet just below the armpit. He bled out before they could get him off the range because there was no pressure point to access. The investigation surmised the round struck an already embedded round in the backstop which caused the ricochet. A freak accident for sure, but it did not do his wife or any of the rest of us any good knowing it was just really really bad luck.
