Deer feeders in front of those mounds!

Gongs are always fun, especially when kids and new shooters are out with ya.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

Sorry, I do not have much to add, I would go with berms at the yardages of interest.

One thing a bare in mind, any rounds that impact in your range floor a very capable of launching into the "wild blue" landing in a uncontrolled location. Be very respectful and protective of your neighbors.
