Shooting steel

Thinking about hanging Brake routers say 200 yds. I know their steel castings I wonder if they'll brake or be safe to shoot at sling shots and High power rifles ?

Re: Shooting steel

I shoot steel plow disk at 400 yards, just blows hole through it..I also shoot railroad plates at 400 yards, I angle them down because a bullet just splats against them...I've layed down cardboard under these plates and shot them with Ballistic Tips, the cardboard looks like a shotgun hit'em.

Re: Shooting steel

If you know someone that works for a construction comp that has loaders or motor graders see if you can have there old cutting edges. I have some and are holding up pretty well.

Re: Shooting steel

a manhole lid can take quite the beating especially from longer distances.
