Here is my favorite target. I bought this steel target last summer at a gun show & just got the chance to get it to the range to try it out. When I bought this target the guy that was selling them told me that this one will take as much as a .223 hit but not to use a .30-06 on it. It cost me $40 I think & it is about 12" tall.
So I took it to the range & gave it a try with the .223 AR first shooting at a distance of 75yds.
Here is a picture of what small amount of damage was done from the .223 rounds
It had such small amount of damage from the .223s that I thought I would give my AK47 (7.62x39) a try, here is the results of my test.
It was from steel sights so I only got one hit.
Then in my test I gave my AK74 (5.45x39) a try, but this was surplus steel core ammo so I expected some damage maybe a hole through it. I took only one shot first to see what happened, that was the mark at the top of the paddle. After walking out & back I took another shot to get a good hit, here is what I got.
There wasn't much damage by any of the rounds I fired & was a lot of fun.
I need to pick up a few more of these to have competitions with friends.
We could start at 75yd mark & see how far you could push it with a 30rd mag full of ammo.
