What would be the best way to build a little target range?
Plow up a berm at least ten feet high for a backstop.
3/4 of a mile isn't far. Even a .22 short will carry that far. It doesn't matter if the land behind you is 6.4 acres, 640 acres, or 6,400 acres. YOU own one acre, and you have no right to allow your bullets to leave your one acre.
