Re: Shooting Steel (newbie?)
The folks that sell the AR500 and AR600 steel targets say to place the steel targets a mimimum of 100 to 125 yards down range from the shooter. Based on that I think it overly risking it to shoot steel targets with a building 150 to 350 yds to the sides, or down range of, your steel plate targets. Unless you own the buildings and they're vacant when you shoot, and you don't mind some risk of a hole in them. I saw a video of a 50 BMG shot into a steel plate target from what looked like 100-150 yds down range. A bullet came back at the shooter and after bouncing off the ground surface once, knocked the ear muffs off his head while grazing his head in the process. His comment about the incident was appropriate. Something like 'We won't be doing that anymore.'
