    How far do you think you want to shoot? 300 yards takes about 20 acres a little longer than wide.

    Edit to clarify: it isn't just any 20 acre parcel either. Layout needs to be safely suited.

    five to ten acres is not much land for shooting. It takes just one person moving in next to you to bring up worries of projectiles and noise. Have a flier and you have real problems. look to see if insurance will cover your land. also look for a large umbrella policy to cover guests and trespassers. know what is approx. A mile downrange in case one goes over the berm. Several years ago, two rounds went over a 40foot berm at a local club. One went through a TV and the other into the siding. The trailer was one mile away. we built the range on our land so we were higher than impact areas. We shot into creek banks with dirt piled up behind. a must is no rocks in the berms.

    Fliers are major... we did some shooting once and a round apparently bounced off a rock in our berm (which was probably 30 feet high) and ended up in someone's dining room about a mile and a half away. I know it was more than a mile. 5.56 FMJ ammo.

    One of the members here had a public range down in the Pink area a couple years ago. I think he went broke on it. Anyway it sold and someone got their own private gun range.

    The other thing you need to worry about is your safety zones beyond your berms. Our rifle area may only be 200 yards but we have 3 miles of nothing but trees behind our 30' berm. This safety area is there for misfires and also for customers that truly shouldn't being shooting at that range and miss the berm (it happens at every range).
