Re: Partition VS. AR500 steel
85 yards is a little close to be shootin steel, specialy if your useing Partitions or FMJ as the jackets have a bad habit of flying back at ya.
The Partitions will penetrate just about as good as a FMJ and really raise heck on a target.....even if it is AR500. I've got a couple of AR500 plates that have taken a lot of hits over the years from 12ga slugs, Amaxes and Bergers with no holes.
