    AR plate has a Brinell hardness of 241/255.
    T100 has a Brinell hardness of 240-300. T100 and T200 are used in aircraft landing gear and rocket engine sheeting. I bought a 3/8"X4'X10' sheet at a scrap yard.
    I weld the divets up with hard surfacing rod. I weld all the holes in the mild steel targets up too!
    I don't weld ar because it softens it.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    There is no place in an anti's head where reason can enter. from a Napoleon saying with a tweak.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    I have a few targets!

    And they get hit often. Railway plates.

    Speed is the real killer. The 22-250 can be shooting the same bullet 400 FPS faster than the .223. At under 100 yards, it will make a difference on 3/8 steel.

    From 250 yards with a 308 still left a small divot in the steel

    It was probably flame cut. Heat and quench might bring the hardness up.

    I'll go check but it appeared to be laser cut.

    Best is water jet cut.
    I don't think making it red hot then quenching will help that target. Not the AR500 I am used to working with.
