Ok...so I googled for a half hour and looked on ar15.com and don't see this.

My range does not allow FMJ rifle ammo and sadly that seems to be all that is out there unless I'm missing something.

What's the reason for this and what are my best bets if I hope to ever shoot at the range.

get soft point or hollow point
sounds like they don't want holes in their backstop ;)

you could also get frangible ammo as well


As to the range as long as the bullet is not steel core or steel jacketed it should be fine to use on the range.

One of the local ranges here is the same way. They also only allow one round loaded at a time. Yes, thats right, load one round, fire, eject mag, load another round. Its A backstop issue. Just find some JHP or soft point. I don't recommend frangible.

Sounds like they want you to spend toms of money on their range ammo.
Yup,
A local outdoor range here only wants you to use hollow point ammo or soft points, but they will let people shoot 50BMG? WTF. Don't force me to buy your ammo. More and more it seems that ranges and gun shop owners are getting greedier and finding a real honest seller is a rarity. There are 2 shops locally that I like because they have consistent and fair pricing and the people that work their are not dicks to their customers. They will actually talk with them and help them determine what it is they need, and amazingly not try to sell them a $1500 gun when a $500 is all they need.
I understand that a business needs to make money, but if you have fair prices and service, you will make more than by having inflated prices and bad service.
