Re: 1/2" AR500 Steel targets for???
We are using AR400 and at 80yrds a 308 w/ an SMK put a small hardly noticeable ding in the steel. At 400 and out, the only damage is the paint being removed. No visible signs of damage on the surface. I would imagine the 500 will stop what ever you throw at it as long as you aren't using armor piercing rounds.
