EDIT: If anyone is interested at all, act now and I will include a free rattle can paint job (but only if you want it).
I can do Camo Brown, Camo Khaki, or Camo Olive. Or any combination.
I could also do something like my AR if you are interested in shooting a snake skin looking camo target hahaha. My AR paint job. (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=398706)

I don't think you will find a better deal.
I have the receipt from the steel manufacturer stating that this is AR500.
NOT AR400 WHICH WILL NOT STAND UP TO RIFLE ROUNDS

16"x23" pieces of 3/8" AR500 steel plate.
$100 each - firm. Local pickup only in Westminster, CA.
No threadcrapping, please.

Trades considered: Russian SKS, Old Mosins (antique, czarist, ex-dragoon, etc), German K98, Russian/Polish/Yugo Tokarev, Springfield 1903a3, M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Hi-point carbine (9mm/.45, yes I am serious haha). Kel-Tec Sub-2000 (glock mags). Any modern handguns (Glock, S&W, whatever).
Will throw in cash on my end where necessary.

Unaltered so you can customize to your preferences.
Weld on something to mount it, get two holes cut into it for hanging, cut it into two 16"x11.5" targets, stand it up, whatever!

We shot one of the pieces I'm keeping all day with 5.56 NATO, 7.62x39, and 7.62x54r from only 75 yards (was with beginners) and the only real marks are where the jacket fragmented and essentially polished/scratched the plate.
It actually looked cleaner after I shot it because it removed to oxidization. haha.

This is how I set one up at the range. Worked fine.

After a day of 5.56x45, 7.62x39, 7.62x54r at only 75 yards (pretty darn close).

For size comparison only. Your piece will not have my name written on it haha.

I was shooting a couple different .30 caliber rounds at it (x39 and x54r)
I think some of mosin ammo was steel core and it didn't dent or puncture it, but it barely flaked a little piece off maybe. Idk.
I don't think it is meant for steel core penetrator ammo.
It is best to use normal ammo.
The ammo I was using was mostly FMJ with brass and steel case.

16x23 from the pics, but the tape measure is upside down. Apparently I can read it and you can't, but I'm not sure who is dyslexic?

That's some really nice stuff, but too much travel distance for me.

is 3/8 stout enough for hi-power 30 cal? will it stand up to steel core?

BUMP!

Buy this stuff man!
I don't need all six targets just for myself :D

$100 gets you a target that will last!
Quick walking out and changing the paper every other magazine.
You know you want to hear that classic "ping" that only shooting steel can bring!
