Hi All
What would be a good steel to use to make field targets out of
Ones that could take a hard shot - say from a .25 cal. condor at 30 yards
Or a 950 fps rifle at 15 yards
I heard old saw blades are very strong

Too darn many - but - still not enough

3/16" steel works fine, I have a crow re-set target made form 3/16" I have shot with my .25 Condor at 10yds and it does nothing to it, maybe over repeated use at the range/power., but I have yet to see it happen...

If you went with .25" it would last a lifetime...

"Are you guys silly? I'm still gonna send it..."
