    I started out making these for myself, then my shooting buddies started asking for them… you get the story. I am posting this to see what kind of interest there would be on NWF for me to spend a weekend building them for others.

    The Details

    10X12 ½ inch thick AR400 steel plate, target is about center mass in height. The rest is self explanatory from the photos. I have shot this plate with a 44mag & 7.62x39 with no damage.they do not spin, just deflect rounds down. 223 will put a small dent/pock mark in the steel but would take a long time to destroy.
    I can build them out the door for around 80 bucks, (depending on steel prices +or- a few dollars)
    Let me know if you would like one and depending on the response, I will make some more.

    Can you make other shapes? I would be interested in 8" rounds, pepper popper shapes or silhouette shapes. I'm not looking for knock-downs or swingers; just a static target that goes "clang" when hit.

    Do you own a metal business? If so, I will be interested in 12x12 AR500 or AR550 steel. Let me know price?

    I'd buy one in 10x12! I'd prefer an 8x8 plate though. would it be possible to purchase a 24''x24'' plate from you?

    I have not hit the frame with a rifle round, but my guess is that a centered hit may bend it. pistol rounds leave a mark, but nothing major.

    I do not own a metal business, just a guy who did not want to spend $150 on steel targets, so i made my own. after making a bunch of them for friends, i posted here to see if people wanted some.

    only building the one you see for now, could build 8x8 if enough people wanted them.

    I am interested in a target if you are taking orders. What would the turn around time be?
