    I'd like to start shooting steel at moderate ranges instead of picking up so many little pieces of milk jugs. As far as I know, your run of the mill welding shop steel will wither under high powered rifle fire ( 30-06, .308, .243, etc) So, what types of steel are appropriate, and where can I get my hands on some?

    thanks

    rztargets.com I have been using his targets for 15-20 years, and I find them very hard to break. Worth every penny.

    Know any welders? My dad welded me some swinging targets out of AR500 plate he found.

    Another option, my range has a bunch of surplus oxygen and acetylene tanks with the bottoms cut out hanging from a frame at the 100 and 300 yard lines. I can get one swinging pretty good with a .30-06 by taking shots at the bottom of it. My AR-15 does not move it at all, the only way I can tell if I hit it or not is by sound.
