A buddy was telling me why they quit using an old oil drum as a backstop. They kept hearing impacts to their left and realized that their rounds were looping the back of the barrel and hitting the utility trailer to their left.

I can't call that a ricochet either. That was either a negligent discharge or some just shot into the air.

HIGHLY unlikely. Sounds like a theory put forth by someone who was unable to find the actual shooter. Probably some anti-hunting bias thrown in. I'm calling BS
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
