I am going to get a 4x8 sheet of steel to use for targets. I'm having trouble figuring out what all I want and what all I can get out of a 4'x8' sheet. Was looking for ideas from you guys. I know I want several 6" and 8"circles, a few silhouettes, maybe some poppers but besides that I'm lost.

P.s. a member on here is helping me with getting the steel. Don't want to put his name on here without his permission but want to say thanks again.

a .243 will shoot through 1/4" steel at 200 yards, the same rifle will make almost a 1/8" inch deep cavity in 1/2" regular steel plate at 300 yards

Make sure the steel hangs freely like with chains or rope. It helps absorb the bullet shock.

Sorry should have clarified. 3/8" AR 500 steel for a pistol range.
