Thinking about makin my own field

I live out in the middle of nowhere, and land is cheap, so we own a decent bit of land.

my only problem is that most of it is farmland or heavily wooded area.

So...now my point.

I have a large piece of land ( on a hill tho ) that i am considering using as my paintball field area.

The problem is, its close to my house...How far will a paintball travel on average?

And do paintballs wash off of plastic siding easily?

fps = feet per second

Fields make you chrono at 260-300.

The general rule that fields use is that you have to be 200 feet from the highway. But If it is you house, i would say be 300 feet away to be safe.
