OK, yeah 3/8" mild will be shot through with many calibers even at 1000. Ar 400 or 500 is the ticket, but expensive.
As far as rifle weight, I would not care what someone brought. If you are still doing this as a "field condition" shoot to resemble a "hunting scenario" they should all shoot off a bipod, pack or whatever they do in a hunting situation. I would not allow use of a bench , ledsled, or machine rest. One or two shots at each target to simulate hunting and a follow up. For a hunting type match it should come down to who knows their rifle, can shoot it, and read conditions for first round accuracy.
That my opinion anyway
