Location: SOCIALIST CONTROLLED TERRITORY OF NEW YORK
What do you guys use for targets? I have some poppers to shoot my pistols at but I need something to shoot my rifles at. I was thinking of a full size deer but I dont know what it would cost. I would like to see pic's if you had some.
300yds is the closest I will shoot them. As long as they are only held at the top they should be safe as far as ricochets go. If the plate was held in place rigid by all four corners you would get some back at ya.
I shoot the .223 out to 500yds with little 55gn hornady pills and they dont even budge the steel, it looks like they almost vaporise on the target, very impressive.
Here is what I am currently using. The t-posts are nice because I can leave then set up at my different yardages and just slip my target holders off the top of them. That way people do not go through and shoot them all up when I am not there. I am currently using 1/4" wall mild steel square tubing which rings like a really good bell when hit. The 338 Lapua is the only thing that is teally damaging the tubing and it will only go through one wall.
I will not shoot steel under 500 yards.
