That's the correct path.

An ROE doesn't stop a bullet from going over the top, a backstop high enough does regardless of shooter competency.

One of my clubs had a complaint, threatening lawsuit, of a bullet over the berm hitting a house.

"No muzzles over the berm except revolvers during reloads" is quite common at ranges where an errant shot over the berm could result in what you mentioned or worse.
