Default Nope, not this one...

You can scratch this one off this list...
Ar - 15 Tactical Spinner Target, Shooting Accessories, Do-All at Sportsman's Guide

After only 150 rounds, 1/3 of one of the lower spinner targets came flying off. I was using 55-grain Federal rounds...nothing special...typical Wal-Mart box of 100...... I'm going to work on making my own target that can withstand .223 rounds...

The key is soft lead nose on these. That screws a guy on most store bought ammo. I prefer PMC Bronze and that aint soft nose.

I have been making my own out of AR500. You can shoot 3/8 Ar500 with FMJ till you go bankrupt. It will also take steel core a long time to render AR500 useless but because of the cost of the AR500 I never shoot AP at them but everything else is fair game. I haven’t had a problem with 3/8 all the way up to 30-06 FMJ. Closest I have shot is 50 yards with the 06 FMJ and it just leaves a small dimple.

This is the one shot with M855 5.56 at 100 yards the rest are FMJ from .223, 243, 30-06 and a couple 12 ga slugs



5/8" T7 with M855 and two 300Win Mag(holes) at 100 yards, the shallower ones are from 200 yards

I made a test target out of 1/2" AR400 and it held up alright shooting at 75 yrds. .223 HP's and 30.06 SP didn't seem to make much difference in the end result, there was substantial dents but it would take hundreds of rounds to render it useless. I will try AR500 next.
