Promise not to laugh, but I wanted a LR steel Target so I could see splash marks, & here a thwack when I connected. As it turns out, I got a bunch of 3/4" steel (just the regular stuff) for free.
I shot it at 300 with everything from 223 ball ammo to 270WSM, 338 win & 300 Wby. Yep it SUCKED! Pock marks 3/16 deep!
But at 500+ on out, it looks like a BB gun hit it, & splashes beautifully when painted white. Same cartriges with everything from ball, to cup & core to Accubonds, & its barely dinged!
Is say thickness makes a HUGE difference.
If you have access to Higher grade steel in thicker pieces GET IT! I still shoot mine often. Only down side is it chips paint on the off side a little. But hey, its cheapo soft steel that was free! I love it for 500+yds.
Did I mention 2 pieces is squatting my Jeep suspension? Who needs sand bags Ha!
Id be happy to email pics of both to someone if they wanna post em.
I'm kicking & screaming into the 21st century, & just plain gave up trying. It worked a couple times from Photobucket the old way, & when I was trying it from a computer, & my wife helped. Now I can't do anything, cause I'm using my phone. But I can type this & send email, & make a call. I'm technologically retarded. Sorry.
Nice shootin by the way boys.
