Re: Steel Targets
I tend to use targets slightly smaller than the size of the "kill zone" of the animals I hunt. Mostly squares and circles in the 12" & 10" range. Perhaps more important than size is the type of steel used. Mild steel will get beat up real quick. Those calibers will punch a hole i 3/8" steel even at 800 yds. Your best bet would be to order targets made from AR500 steel - the same steel used for armor plating by the military. There are sponsors on this site that sell them. Every now and then, a group buy is available on Snipershide, where they are a real bargain. Money well spent.
