Re: Bergers on steel plate target
It's used a lot in Ag and construction equipment repair. I used to made a lot of structural stuff for mines there where a few things I made that the weld had to be harfaced, Hoppers and the like. Rod and flux core wire can be had as many different flavors as you can think of.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
