    two issues:
    1) damage to the backstop
    2) fire hazard

    Steel jackets likely won't affect the backstop, but they could cause sparks, which in turn, could start a fire.

    We are concerned with what the magnet does to the BULLET! Steel cases are fine as they have no impact on our backstop or baffles.

    If a magnet sticks to the bullet you cannot shoot it here!

    this is one of my main issues when considering buying a membership at TSE. I mainly shoot 7.62x39. is there a source for "cheap" ammo that could be fired indoors.

    pretty much all indoor ranges ban the firing of steel bulleted ammunition because of the backstop issues.

    Define "cheap".
    You can get soft point 7.62 x 39 ammo made by Prvi Partizan from some gun shops, but it cost me $18 per 20 rounds last time I found some at P&D in Edmonton. Never seen any in Calgary.
    I guess you could get some brass and reload it with lead bullets, but that surplus stuff is berdan primed and can't be reloaded--- good luck.

    If a guy was really really desperate I am sure you could pick up a mould to make some lead bullets.....but assuming its semi auto that would be some mad bullet making and loading especially when you will likely only find half you casings after they eject halfway across the room LOL
