Re: Proper steel type for plates?
Hey Guys,,,Just thought you should know about shooting steel under 200yds!!!!! A customer of mine was shooting steel at 100 yds and the bullet jacket returned and hit him squarely between the eyes, knocked him out cold!!!! had two stiches. I tested a 408 for penetration in 1 1/4" steel block at 200yds, it went 1" in with large crater, the bullet riqocheted somwhere???? Not doing that again. Maybe if the plates are angled so the frags hit the ground???? Still its scary to know where all the frags are going!
We updated to 500 steel on our targets, now just a dimple occurs with high vel rounds. They ring like a bell! At 1000yds it sounds like a church bell ringing for over 30 secs.
