Thread: I need a new target...

    I need a new target...

    Well being a little bored yesterday afternoon I decided to take out the 300 as its been in the cabinet for nearly a month and I wanted to get ready for some long range foxes in the summer months.

    200m shot 10mm Steel target on a swing arm with gusty winds from left to right, the bottom left shot actually hit the support leg when it glanced off and blew it in half so now I need a new target to shoot at.

    This was with 180gr SST over 64.5gr N160

    Yep that's going to be the only way! I was surprised though on the through one!

    Use FMJ's they don't penetrate steel so well as SP's.

    Poor foxes, that .300 will definitely collect them hard.

    Or if doing it as cheap as possible & you own a welder just fill it up.... Even better is stitch a plate onto a plate to double up thickness etc
