10 inch chains should be ok. I and my shooting buddies regularly shoot steel as close as 8 yards. My point about 15 yards is you will still get splatter at that distance. We shoot a dueling tree at 10 yards a lot and the downward deflection splashes small gravels and raggedy pieces of bullet jacketing back at us. Not life threatening but you would not want to catch it in your eye. 10 yards seems to be the standard recommended safe minimum from target makers but splatter will go farther. I hope you reload so you can shoot cheap because you will become addicted.
