Most of the information is available on their website.
If you were to wait until June 23 you could go out with the Cal Guns people from this very forum. That will be a private range, and a lot more family friendly than, perhaps, the general admission areas.
Look for the Los Angeles community forum for info on that. You will encounter a lot of helpful people that way.

Don't bring ammunition that attracts a magnet (unless its wet season, which it is not)
Don't bring target stands that have any metal
Don't bring metal targets

Bring any legal firearms up to and including 50cal

The regular ranges depend on what you shoot. There is a rifle range, a handgun range which have benches.
There is also a shotgun range.
You can bring a target, or rent them there $2.
As to the other stuff, ezup, table, chairs, the time for that would be the Cal Guns private range.
There each one sets up whatever they want. Table, tent, etc. And again you can bring targets or rent them.
You can also go out and reconnoiter the place. Alone or with the family. With or without shooting.
More than once I have gone to a shooting range, didn't like what I saw, and left.
As to Burro, I only go with Cal Guns on the private range.

Thank you for the information. What do you think good targets would be good to take other than paper targets were already taking?

nothing really if you will be on the general firing line.

too many times i hear of stories where other people on the line will shoot these better targets right off the bat when line is hot. save the extra stuff for private range. just use the standard paper stuff for the public shooting area.

Did Burro ever allow magnetic ammo during the last wet season?

I would also endorse a CG private range event as a good first time to shoot at Burro. While my other non CG experiences there have been mostly positive, I have seen quite a bit of buffoonery on the public ranges. Such as people who are kitted out with EBR's and tactical gear, but who are devoid of any safe gun handling habits or training or common sense (i.e. muzzling people or the compulsion to dick around with their rifles during cold lines). Lots of gangster types with their .22's and .380's and tactical Raiders hats too.

rifle

Pistol

Take sandbags it gets windy, oranges, watermelons, clays, don't shoot rocks. Not crowded during week. You can shoot or buy bowling pins, rifle range 100 yrds out or more.

I went one day during rain this year and asked about it, wasn't crowded at all and they would have let me but all I had was steel core surplus and that is still a no no.

During the week I find it pretty tame at Burro, weekend can get a few nut jobs, rarely go on weekends because mostly you get numbnuts that will shoot across lanes and wipe out your pvc or their targets blow over and help themselves to yours, now that sucks. Bangers, meh, they don't bother me and it's fairly rare to encounter them.

1.) If a magnet sticks to it, you can't shoot it.
2.) Shoot under a canopy, tree, or else bring a nice big hat and sunscreen. And water. Lots of water.
3.) Be extremely cautious and safe handling.
4.)

Yes you can bring your own clay thrower. Just a reminder, you cant use soda cans or empty water bottles as targets. Have fun shooting!

"Wet Season" is a code word for "We NEVER allow magnetic ammo"

Yeah, wet season does not exist. It literally has to be raining for the magnetic bi-metal ammo to be ok.
I recommend taking some fruit to shoot at op - if you've never done it before, you'll have a blast. Shooting at paper with a rifle can get old real quick.

Im new to this scene and just purchase my first two weapons (Vepr 5.45x39 and Saiga 7.62x39).

Im confused as to what type of ammo would be allowed. I just bought some Russian surplus 5.45x39 (spam container) and Wolf military classic for the 7.62x39.

Would these two types of ammo be allowed at Burro Canyon?

Thanks.

Most likely both of your ammos are not allowed as they are bimetal and attract a magnet

Go to your local produce market and buy the biggest bag of the largest onions you can find. Place them out in the field and blast them!

This time of the year, NO steel jacketed or steel-core ammo is allowed at Burro.

Check your ammo yourself to see what you've got, before driving all the way up there. Just touch a magnet to the bullet (not the case, that doesn't matter) and see if the magnet is attracted to it. If it is, there's steel in them thar bullets and they won't be allowed at Burro.

Anyone know if Burro will allow these reactive targets? The base supposedly has a big lead insert for weight. I haven't seen one of these in person yet, so I don't know if there's any metal in it.

No, you can't use them until the rainy season starts. They have that big steel ball in their base and that's a no-no downrange during fire season.

They make reactive targets without metal. Don't forget hearing protection for the little guy. While I'm on that subject anyone know where to get some ear muffs for kids. Gotta find some before I take the grandson.
