Most outdoor ranges will allow you to shoot steel case ammo. The problem is if they will allow any bullets that will attract a magnet.

Usually indoor ranges prevent you from using steel or aluminum cased ammo. Outdoor ranges usually don't care about the casing, just steel core or jacketed ammo that they do not approve of.

Check if you proji sticks to a magnet. If it doesnt, Go to either A Place to Shoot in Santa Clarita area, or Angeles in Sylmar. Both are good outdoor ranges with steel targets out to 400 yds and 600 yds respectively.

Thankyou so much jpac. I called a place to shoot and they said it's all good. Best of all it's in my area. You have been absolutely helpful

Angeles and A place to shoot both allow steel cased, just not steel core.

Next time try waiting more than 37 minutes for an answer! you know people work during the day, right?

The only wolf that will not attract a magnet is wolf "gold". Especially with 5.45 ammo, you are stuck. Technically, "A Place to Shoot" doesn't allow the ammo. However, I go to Shooter's Paradise in Oxnard. There are mixed reviews on this place, but they allow steel rifle ammo. Handgun ammo is a different story, their reloads only, for the most-part.

Otherwise, private gun clubs with no range officers is your only other option.

Good luck.
