    Forgive my ignorance on different types of steel but what sort of calibers would the gongs be suited to?

    450 grade should be fine up to .308 maybe more (i haven't tested) and i can make them out of 12mm or 16mm which could handle a lot more impact but are a lot heavier and more expensive

    I tested some 10mm bis450 just a week or so ago at 100y. It's not big calibers that kill gongs its velocity. 223 50gr zmax at 335fps did the most damage over a 147gr eldm at 2750fps and the 178gr amax at 2700fps

    Are you able to make an 8" gong? If so how much? Either square or circular would be fine.

    Cheers
