Only if the pellet leaves your boundary, i.e. you're out bunnying in a field and even then I think the 50yards is more for shotguns so as not to startle drivers.
Best bet with neighbours is to be pro-active, so go round, introduce yourself, explain that you are a serious competition shooter who needs to practice at home during the week and is that ok with them.
At least then they a.) have met you after 10 years and b.) know you're not some jihadi sniper practicing to take someone out...
