What's the deal with steel....?

...Ammo that is - whether steel core, or bi-metal jacketed, neither is permitted at two of my 'local' OUTDOOR ranges?!?! These places don't use (or even permit) steel targets, nor do they appear to use steel backstops, just your basic big berm of dirt.

I just don't get it. What's the problem with allowing steel core/jacketed ammo in this situation?

The ranges I'm referring to are Bald Mountain and Island Lake State Recreation Areas, run by the Michigan DNR.

Any other outdoor ranges anywhere have this restriction?

Steel core ammo can start fires in the outdoors, that is the reason for not allowing it in Indoor and outdoor ranges here in So. Cal.

The steel core can spark and even get red hot to start combustion.

be safe.
