Thought this could be a useful thread.......

I have been meaning to buy steel plates for awhile but the cost always turned me off when shipping was added in. I hadn't really seen much local. I just bought this:

XSTEEL 8" AR500 GONG 3/8" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UY8O9LY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_tyifxbW4GPAFM
When I ordered it it was $25 with A prime.

What do you guys have?

I buy quite a few AR500 steel targets from this guy.

He is great to deal with, good prices,
Buy $100 worth , get a free one, and free shipping..

I'm a really happy customer, as I have lots of people come over to my range to shoot, and the steel targets are the most used.

Well, I'd forgotten that I started this thread! I guess while I'm at it I'll give a little update on the target I ordered.

I built a stand from wood and hooked the plate on to it with a chain. The frame is made from two 'A' pieces with a cross beam. The plate hangs in the middle. I've shot the plate 100's of times with all shorts of bullet types.
Mostly 9mm and .357/.38 spl. It has held up exactly how it's supposed to: no dents or cracks.

I would recommend this plate!

Note: it is also very loud. When shooting it with a .22, the noise of the bullet hitting the plate is louder than the gunshot itself.
