another range finder...
Find NRA Near You NRA gun range finder

Only 2 FMJ Gibsons and Magnum and tacpro in mingus and a private one... I think one in fort worth allows... need to look at my emails.
2 FMJ Ranges in DFW Gibson's and Magnum DFW gun ranges listed and websites.

3 fmj outdoor ranges in dfw.

found another fmj range www.jacobsplain.com in greenville. they also allow quick draw.

depending on caliber... 223 and 762x39 are 'cheap' and readily available on the internet in soft point and hollow point. so if you are shooting those you can go to almost any outdoor range I know of.
 
I want to thank everyone for information in regards to 'allowable FMJ at Dallas Ranges'. Why did I specify Dallas? I was just trying to find a range close to home (Bedford). As I see it the biggest problem with gun ranges TODAY is that many of theser ranges in the DFW area were at one time located in 'UNDEVELOPED AREAS' I have lived in the DFW area all my life I can remeber the range off of Luna (when there wasn't Luna) was located in what was called 'the boonies'; heck it was all ranch land! There wasn't problem with any one going out pulling off the road near a bridge go down to creek and shoot at whatever at the creek bank on the other side! I used to go target practice with my shotgun in Irving where 'Lion Country Safari' used to be! The bottom line is all of the one time 'open range' in the DFW area is going going GONE!! Now the one time isolated gun ranges are surrounded by either housing or business developments. They are forced to dis-allow one time acceptable ammo OR restrict you to a short range (25 yards). I'm going to buy some brass or copper FMJ and pick one of the many gun ranges suggested to me and just see what happens. Again thanks to everyone for your suggestions.

Looks like this thread kinda fizzled out a couple of months ago but I was surprised there was very little mention of The Bullet Trap In Plano. I have zeroed in the scope on my Savage 30-06 and shot my Win. 30-30 there several times. The rifle range is only 25 yards. There was never any mention of what kind of ammo I was using, but they are very proud of their little sticks that hold the target. If you shoot their stick it will cost you $20.00. Actually I've considered shooting the stick and paying the $20.00 just for the fun of it but the guys that work there are pretty nice and I don't want to piss them off.
 
FMJ ammo allowed at any Dallas or Ft worth gun range

I was the orginator about the use of FMJ at any DFW firing range and I to am suprised there is still replys to my question but you know what that's great! It just shows there are a lot people who just like to go out to a range and fire off a few rounds either for preparation for the up coming hunting seasons or just the love holding piece of iron and wood in their hands and the rush of popping off those rounds. In my last reply I mentioned that is so so sad the DFW area has expanded its tentacles ever farther in every direction turning once get away areas out in the country side or sticks (as we use to call it) are now those sticks are have been converted into strip malls, housing developments etc. its really sad. But as long as we have forums like this, the NRA and all other gun advocates at least we say 'It's my right to bear arms' and if the law changes WELL IT DOSEN'T MATTER I AIN'T GIVING MINE UP!!! Like the Texas for independance slogan/flag said COME AND GET IT!!

Elm Fork allows FMJ on the 25 and 30 yard ranges. We also allow steel core and pretty much anything else you have. Our 100 yd range, on the other hand, does not allow either; soft tip or hollow point only and rifles must be scoped to 3x or better.

bullettrap and targetmaster in garland (50 yard range indoor) allow fmj but it must be tested by a magnet or cutting. most surplus fmj ammo will not pass the magnet or cutting test.

All brass commercial ammo in fmj is not magnetic and you can shoot that indoors monarch at sports academy has 2 types steel case (cheaper) and all brass (cost more but is not magnetic and you can shoot indoors).

i have spent many days at targetmaster and was a member shooting at 50 yd indoor rifle range.
