Steel Cased Ammo Not For Indoor Ranges?

Why some indoor ranges not allow steel cased ammo? Is that because steel cases are non-reloadable.

Because the steel-cased is usually Russian ammo, steel-core projectiles...   No steel-core (and no Green-Tip M855 62gr ammo) on the backstops at indoor ranges... 

That's predominately the reason.  They just lump all steel-cased together, pistol, rifle, whatever.  Usually not allowed.

I don't let people shoot M855 at my steel targets, because it rips them up. Same rationale.

This, plus when you destroy the indoor range it’s usually property that costs several tens of thousands to fix. Plus after a magazine or so those steel core projectiles are going to be ricocheted back at you when you strip the absorbent material and get down to steel. Trust me, dodging bullets isn’t fun.
