Having never actually recorded bullet by's/ricochets (I have recorded firing of weapon's previously ) I'm unsure of what kinda results to expect..
You'd be surprised what good riccos you can get by simply firing into flat hard dirt about 50 to 100 feet away, placing the mics about another 50 or a hundred feet farther on. In my opinion the kind of mic you use isn't nearly as important as your willingness to fire LOTS of rounds to get a few really great bys.
