Sorry this is so late, but just noticed. For those of you in the Rocky Mountains, acidifiying the soil might not be a problem. Much of our soil is very alkaline and it is nearly impossible to acidify it to grow things like blueberries and rhododendrons. In the Rockies, there are virtually no botanical circumstances where you need to add lime to soil, as we have so much already.

To know if you're basically safe to use the bio or blackout targets, you'd need to test your soil pH, which is not hard to do. Check you local Extension office.

Other gun club owners and managers in my area are advising not to buy the blackouts. We will need a truck load by fall and will not order them.

I guess I'm lucky. No grass = no wildfires in summer and fall. Also makes range maintenance easier not having to mow.

Except soil with an acidic pH will cause the lead to start leeching into the ground, which is something you don't want, esp in CA...

If your target fall and your shot fall are in the same area, you're either using too weak of a shotshell or too strong of a trap spring.
