Default Where to find steel targets for hopefully cheap?

Going to the desert on short notice and I want to pick up steel. This is for rifles, .223 and .308 mostly but I may bring the .338lm for a few rounds. Is there anywhere in Orange County that sells steel targets for a decent price?

Try Industrial Metal Supply in Irvine. I did buy some AR500 round plates from them a few years ago. Don’t recall how much they were though. Give them a call and see if they still carry it.

Bring a fire extinguisher & shovel with you

Copper jackets bullets do spark and start fires

I purchased mine from a charity organization in Washington state.

This is the place where I purchased mine.

Black plastic sewer pipe makes a decent target frame. The black plastic does not shatter like white PVC

If your handy and have an oxy-acetylene torch and a mig welder you can fab up some cheap 3/8 rebar frames to hold up your targets. Or you can grab a few bowling pins “Safer” and hang em as well. This is what I made up... and that’s one of the plates I bought a few years ago!

I go to my local scrap center. The have all kinds of stuff including steel plate. Make sure you construct a hanger or way to hold it up and have a slight slant towards you at the top, so that any ricochet goes into the dirt, nut up or back at you.

+1 for IMS, they have a couple bins of remnant stock they sell for cheaper. You can find all kinds of goodies there, especially if you have the machining capabilities to touch them up.
