    Hickok45 range questions

    OK...everyone has seen his compound range....and drooled...so my question is about the swinging cutouts....what are they made out of and about what would they cost......I think he has 5" circles, and 7" circles, some squares and some upper body cutouts.

    Tempered steel plate......3/8" to 1/2" I would guess.......somewhat costly to have flame cut at a steel fab. shop.

    I would quess ar500 or 550 steel for a hand gun round at that hardness 5/16" would work or, if your gonna shoot it with a rifle I'd go with 3/8-1/2 " Plate at ar550.

    He talks about the company he buys them from, but I've forgotten now. He does answer private messages on youtube though. I do know you want steel that wont crater from the impact, not just any regular steel plates will do.

    Heres one company. They sponsor some youtube giveaways too. Challenge Targets

    I would say it is ar500 steel. One of my shooting buddies is a nationally recognized welding teacher. He made me a target of AR400, good for all pistol rounds. He took one out and shot it with a .308, thing looked like swiss cheese. AR500 is what will withstand many, small rifle rounds, .223, .308 etc.
