You need to have a berm anywhere you have targets. If you want targets set up at 3 different ranges then you need berms at each of those ranges.
Absolutely!!!

For decades Ft. Sill had a private weapons range; MB-1. MB-1 was a 100 yard range with berms at 25, 50, and 100 yards. Just behind the 100 yard berm is a steep hill that rises 200-250 feet above the level of the range.

They tore out all but the 100 yard berm. Soon after close in ricochets started going over the hill into the parking lot at the Sportsmans Center. A muzzleloader bullet broke the windshield of a pickup while a deer drawing was being held in the parking lot: That was the end of a really good range.
