Re: Check out my gong!

Very funny. But ya know, there just might be some sort of market for these flattened jackets. Hmmm?? We could call them "Jackson jackets". Maybe we make them out of ballistic tips and call them "ballistic ti#s"??

Am I on to something?

Re: Check out my gong!

This is my first post and this topic interested me because of what I saw yesterday. I was going after some prairie dogs and we were skunked by rain. We went to the range and after a couple hours of shooting started visiting with the owner. I saw he had his 50 out and inquiried about it. He proceded to show me a 5x10" piece of steel that he shot 3 times at a range of 80 yds. The only damage that piece of steel had was a dimple no deeper than the thickness of a dried split pea! Now I've never shot a 50 but jeeminee christmas! I asked how in the world they could work that metal and the answer came back "plasma". The metal is used in New Mexico for crushing rock. I"ll see if next week I can get a picture of it and post it. I thought it was unbeliveable.

Re: Check out my gong!

How thick was it, how expensive was it and where can I get some?

Here's one of mine; just 3/8" mild steel but the cast lead bullets don't do much but splatter at the longer ranges. I have T1 for the other cartridges and it works well. I might add though that from 1000 yds. the '06 using 180 gr. Scirocco bullets will just splatter on this mild steel also! Up close...300 yd. or so....it's a no no on it! That's when I use the T1 plates! When the 550 grainer from the Sharps hits from 1000....no problem to hear a "booooooonnnnnggggg"!!
