    30.06 on 1/2" AR500 steel?

    Not sure this is the right place for this post; I'm hesitant to try my 30.06 on my AR500 target at 150 yds for fear of damaging it. Any thoughts?

    I have a Caldwell gong that I shoot at 100 with my .338lm. It's holding up just fine to that, so I'm sure you will be good.

    Should be fine, 3/8" AR500 is good for cals up to 3000 FPS

    Thanks for the replies; I bought the target and stand mostly for pistol shooting as it is the 2/3 size IPSC silhouette...love it but it was pricey. I'll report back when I get a chance to shoot the Rem. 760

    Ya on 3/8 inch mild steel. 1/2 AR500 will take a 50 bmg till it starts to curve a bit.
    edit sorry didn't see the 3/8 ms part.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"
