In your own firearm, you may use any permitted ammo type (see below). In our rental firearms, you MUST use our ammo.
STEEL CASE AMMO
No steel case ammo such as Wolf is allowed except in cartridges originally designed to use such steel cases and have a heavy taper to facilitate proper extraction and prevent malfunctions. Steel cases are not allowed in: .380acp, 9mm, .40S&W, .45acp, .223Rem, .308win. Examples of calibers where steel cases are allowed: 9x18Makarov, 7.62×39 (on rifle range only), 7.62x54R (on rifle range only). We have found that most pistol calibers, .45 acp, 9mm, etc., have a much higher failure to cycle rate using steel case ammo than any brass case ammo. When a firearm fails to cycle "or jams" as described, it sometimes requires gunsmith intervention to clear. Additionally, less experienced shooters have a higher chance to have a safety mishap with a malfunctioning firearm while trying to clear it. After clearing many malfunctions involving steel case ammo, we deemed it was necessary to prohibit its use on our range except in the allowed calibers listed above.
HIGH-POWERED RIFE AMMO
Standard center-fire rifle calibers are allowed on all lanes where high-powered rifles are allowed. No belted magnums allowed.
Buckshot through #6 shot is allowed. Shot size #7 and smaller is not permitted. No steel shot or slug rounds are allowed at any time.
NO STEEL CORE AMMO
Steel core & armor piercing projectiles are not allowed at any time - these can damage range equipment and walls. If it sticks to a magnet, it cannot be shot on our range. This includes any kind of armor piercing, steel core, tungsten core, depleted uranium, ceramic or any hardened penetrator core of any type. This ammunition will damage our range equipment.
TRACER OR INCENDIARY AMMO
No tracer or any type of incendiary ammo allowed at any time - these are a severe fire hazard and additionally are illegal in California.
