As you are probably aware, there are different safety ranges for rifles and pistols. If you are shooting a pistol using lead 15 yards would be a safe distance. Rifles obviously would have a greater safety distance. But as you stated they would be well within the safety ranges of the jacketed bullets you mentioned.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
-- John F. Kennedy
