During the Fire Ban/Early Shift fire hazard ratings here on Gabriola, black powder shooting on our ranges is prohibited. Similarly, Members should not be shooting steel-core, steel-jacketed or solid copper ammunition (see https://www.firelab.org/project/rifle-bullet-ignition  and https://www.fs.usda.gov/treesearch/pubs/43918 ) during the same fire hazard ratings in order to lessen the possibility of igniting range fires.
