Most places only sell 3/8" which doesn't hold up too well with .223/5.56 since it's such a small high velocity round. I decided to just buy a sheet of 1/2" thick AR500 steel and have targets made to my specs. This stuff can withstand a 50BMG fmj round at 100yds with little to no damage and will laugh at an pistol round!

Shooting steel is a lot fun since you get a nice "ping" when you hit the plate! These targets are 1/2" thick AR500 steel and should last a long time when shot with FMJ, HP, or SP ammo at 100yds or greater. If shooting pistols, take care to angle and/or swing the plates to reduce chance of ricochets at 10yd+. Pistol rounds can't damage these targets regardless of distance.

Each set includes two 1/2" thick AR500 plates: one 10"x10" & one 6"x6". Each plate has a 1/2" mounting hole cut out at each top corner for easy hanging from your target stand. Targets will have a light coat of white spray paint which makes it easy to see where you hit, almost like a shoot-n-see target. The set weighs about 20lbs. It is best to hang and/or slightly angle the plates slightly downward to prevent ricochets and deflect any shrapnel into the ground.

Look at my old thread for pics of used and abused targets as well as my first impression. I'll post a pic of my 1yr+ old target when I get back in town, but it still looks like new! If you have any doubt as to the quality of these targets I can tell you that I've had numerous guys buy second and third sets after having one and multiple guys wish they had bought more when I was sold out.
