i got my steel plate from junk yard for 20$.
it is truck (rig trucks - volvo, etc) frame steel 11x18.
i shot my 338edge 300smk at 1024yrds and got just paint scratches. no dents, no perf, just paint scratches from bulet impact.
the steel in 3/8in thick, and i add another one 0.25in as backup. no need for the second plate. the 3/8 works great.
