We did a magnetic test to the tip of a Tiger round and it stuck. The Wolf also stuck to the magnet. Are these rounds made of steel core? Are either of them o.k. at Burro Canyon?

if so please sign in at the office and tell them that you are with the ar15.com group, also make sure that all your guns are all legal , if not dont bring em, there will be range officers there to inforce safety at all times.

The Four Rules of Firearms Handling
by Jeff Cooper

Rule 1
ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.
The only exception to this occurs when you have a firearm in your hands and you have personally unloaded it for checking. As soon as you put it down, Rule 1 applies again

Rule 2
NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO DESTROY.
You may not wish to destroy it, but you must be clear in your mind that you are quite ready to if you let that muzzle cover the target. To allow a firearm to point at another human being is a deadly threat, and should always be treated as such.

Rule 3
KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET.
This we call the Golden Rule because its violation is responsible for about 80 percent of the firearms disasters we read about.

Rule 4
BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND WHAT IS BEYOND IT.
You never shoot at anything until you have positively identified it. You never fire at a shadow, or a sound, or a suspected presence. You shoot only when you know absolutely what you are shooting at and what is beyond it

Sent an message to Burro Canyon, their RO responded that all STEEL CORE bullet are prohibited at all times (so if you have greent tip 5.56, don't bring those), and STEEL JACKET (i.e. most of Com-block ammo including wolf) are prohibited during the fire season. However, not sure when the fire season officially started though. On news yesterday it seems we have one more week to go before fire season started.
