Re: Shooting steel

Sounds like you had a nice setup. Sorry to hear about your targets, it gets me pretty fired up just thinking about your loss.

Re: Shooting steel

Looks good, really convenient. Do you ever have problems with them falling over.

Re: Shooting steel

every now and then one will fall over if you shoot from the right angle and close enough with smaller plate(less weight) and the moon and stars aligned right ect.
Not really a problem for us really we only shoot a plate a few times before repainting it. Only takes a few seconds to run down range on a 4 wheeler.
You can also hang a chain from the same stand with a hook on one end to hang milk jugs up.

Re: Shooting steel

My 30-30 blasted right through a disk break for a 15 inch wheel at 100 yards so...

I use leaf springs I got off a 1/2 ton van. They work well for the 30-06 at 400 yards. At 300 I put a hairline crack in one.


I have a piece of leaf spring for a truck, it is indestructable.

You have a good set up there, good luck with getting a new set built.
