Have been considering getting a revolving metal target. I heard a rumor that when shot with certain calibers that the bullet can be deflected back to you when it flips at a high rate of speed. Keep in mind it will only be used with a .22 lr. Can anybody lay this rumor to rest? It sounds silly to me but I would like opinions on it.
Im not an expert on .22s but i know that the big steel plates used for high powered rifles, are armor plated. This prevents dips in the metal and destroys most ammo on contact. Keeping most bullet fragments from traveling past five yards from contact on the target.
I know that a .50 punches through a jeep engine and doesn't ricochet but that's the extent of my knowledge as we are talking a bit smaller than my preference haha I'd say at 50-75 feet you'd be safe haha
I've shot spinners alot with my model 92 .38/.357. They are a real kick if your action is smooth enough to keep them spinning. I've never had a problem with anything coming back at me. I say check them out.
