Just a little something I threw together. Stand weighs guessing 200lbs, and the top is 8 bags of 80 pound sack-crete.

I think he was referring to the actual metal stand itself.

Yes, 8 dry bags would weigh 640 lbs, add water which will take 20 years or longer to fully cure, add in approx 200 pounds for the metal and you get [censored] heavy.

The fun part is going to be getting it out to the range area. Unless of course you just plan on opening the garage door.
