Self resetting target for .223?
 
Anyone have luck making or buying a self resetting target for the .223? I have been looking at some do-all tagets but the reviews seem to be mostly bad. I am sure I could weld one together however i'm not sure what kind of steel to use, anyone have experience with these?

What kind of target are you looking to make/buy? A spinner? A staged knock down?

I was thinking a simple spinner target, I assume something like AR500 would give me the best durability?

I could make you some simple spinners that would easily handle 223. If you wanted to get fancy I could put them on bearings.

AR500 would be fine. I would also use a minimun of 1/2" plate.

Thanks for the help in steel selection I thought I was on the right track but I wasn't sure.

I haven't made any but I could if folks were interested. The biggest problem is that I don't have a place where I can test them, never messed with steel plate and I'm not sure how the bullets respond to them. I don't want a stray round.

I could do pistols without a problem though.

More to choose from here, or this. Oh, just go here and get it over with.
