Natrona County Bans Big Ammo

Natrona County Bans Big Ammo

Natrona County is banning ammunition larger than .40 calibers at a shooting range after a .50-caliber bullet ended up going through the roof of a home about a mile away.

The county commission passed the ban at the Poison Spider Shooting Range on Tuesday. The range is on county land and is used by the Platte River Rod and Gun Club. A full-time supervisor must also be on site.

Homeowner Will Duel said the bullet hit his metal roof in September and he believes it came from the shooting range, based on its log. Gun club attorney Pat Holscher said he's not sure that the bullet came from the range.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that no one at Tuesday's meeting had seen the results of the sheriff's investigation yet.
