    I would say about $30-40 plus postage for a 200mm square plate with two mounting holes.

    Fence standards are pretty hopeless at holding up a heavy swinging target, they work loose in the ground pretty quick. I reckon more people would be interested in a simple plate with two holes so they can mount any way they like

    Cool thanks for the advice... We'll have a play over the next couple of days then get something up in the f/s section...

    Was using 400bis for my 600m gong(what engineer said it was). 7mm rem 160-162 tmk,amax just chipped paint. eldx sometimes put a small dent. 300win mag 225 eldm almost went through! Can't rmbr whether it is 10 or 12mm. Going to keep it for the 7mm but looking at something better for the 300. Might pay to make a couple and test them at various ranges with a reasonable caliber to make sure they stand up to it ,or at least say what calibers are the probable limit.
