    What is the safe distance to shoot steel BBs? I am looking for downrange safety not effective killing range. I have found a spot for geese but neighbours are 250-300 yards down range. Are there any website with this info?
    Thanks in advance.

    I would be very careful. I have killed crippled geese at 90 yards with 1 3/4 ounce steel BB loads and killed fully live geese at 70 yards with the same load.
