It sounds like you are depending on the marsh rather than a berm to stop those bullets. If that is indeed the case, what is to prevent a ricochet from hitting someone several hundred yards downrange? Such an event would likely result in a great deal of legal issues.
I recall, as a child, spending a lot of time in marshy areas and seeing adults gathering cattails and other plants fairly frequently.
