    Gongs

    Had some fun on saturday smashing gongs with the 7mmRM and my anemic 6.5, got me thinking about sorting some of my own. Where is the best place to buy em from or does anyone on the forums make them?

    Talk to Fletcher Easy Steel in Auckland. Had $2000 worth of plates cut from 10mm thick AR500 a couple of months ago for the club.

    Its been said before, and I'll say it again, be very careful shooting steels of the wrong steel grade set at an incorrect angle to the line of fire ........... you put yourself and everyone around you at considerable risk.

    Save yourself, save a friend, buy AR500 plate as a minimum, and set it up at a 20 deg forward facing angle to your line if fire. The cost difference of AR500 over mild steel plate is only a couple of boxes of ammo. Whats you life or that of a family member worth??

    On offence intended by the above image - I would hate to see someone end up on the "incident" thread of this forum.

    I got a couple made up from 20mm MS for 500 yds. Problem was the wind picked up just after I'd hung it up so I put 5 rounds from the 1917 into it from 100 and can put my thumb into the divots. Quite impressive to see what grunt 30 06 corelokt has.
