Awesome :thumb:
It looks odd, but in reality there is no safety issue here. The concrete wall will stop any low flying rounds, and the unbreakable laws of physics keep the drivers safe. Definitely not a range for n00bs. Love the digital targets.

Good luck doing something like this in the U.S.
This would never get approved no matter how much you prove how safe it actually is.

Coincidentally I ran across this from Al Jazeerah on gun ownership in Switzerland. Kinda long but if you were looking for something to watch it is pretty interesting.

I do see a potential problem with this. Probably not evident with military spec ammunition, but certainly a possibility with lightly constructed match or varmint bullets and high rates of twist. In the event of mid-flight disintegration, I would not want to be on that road.

Awhile ago, I got a good deal on some 6.5mm 123gr Amax bullets. Figured they'd work very well in my 6.5x55 M96 Swede. They did, about 8 out of 10 times. Problem did not show itself at 100 yards when I tested for groups, but when I fired at 200 yards, about 20% would violently separate somewhere between 100 and 200 yards with a puff of smoke and an audible crackling sound. Some larger fragments did impact and penetrate the targets (plural by design) with several feet of deviation over 25-100 yards of flight.

Out of curiosity I fired some more that winter across fresh snowpack on a lake towards a high sand bank and was able to achieve "hits" on the snow from 125-300 yards with several degrees of deviation and a primary flight path at least 6 feet above snow line.

I've had that with .223.

Yeah I probably wouldn't hold the school picnic there either!

Only Swiss military ammo and rifles are allowed on those ranges. NO reloads.
Exception is commercial match loads and match rifles allowed for the serious Matches.
One example:

Have to go elsewhere to sight in a hunting rifles.
