Placement is the key to safety here, not banning the close targets. In the USA they shoot 1/2" armour plate steel spinners at 20yd with .45ACP and .44Mag with no safety issues. The difference is the targets are in a safe place.
Don't see what influence the diameter of the kill area has on the safety of the targets, they have been as close as 8yd for years.
Make every shot count
