    I have a question for you. Like I said in my first post....I am punching right through 3/8the inch mild steel plates at 1100 yards. But, with the same load, I don't even scratch the AR500 targets I have at 500 yards. Not sure the thickness of the ar500, but they are 12 x 12 square that I picked up on a group buy on this site. Would I need the thick ar500 for 1000+ yards, or could I get buy with..say 1/4 inch stuff. My targets are 12H by 24W that I use for ELR shooting.

    Just wonderin if I could save some $$$ and weight by getting thinner steel.

    Thanks,
    Tod

    Just my .02. If you get the thinner ones and you ruin them you are not saving any money.

    Tod, I would go 3/8" AR500. Same as that 12" square you bought from us.

    We actually have a 12x24 square for a screaming deal. Sounds like it would fit the bill perfectly. They are $85 to your door!!!

    But Joseph is right, buy the 3/8" AR500 and be happy forever. Plus you can shoot it at closer range if you ever wanted....


    Thanks, Jake
