Fresh paint this morning[img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/038/2w/5A/Jm/DZ83737.jpg[/img]And still in one piece ! Ive built several swingin steels over the years, but always shot the shit out of em in about 500 rds. This one I built from 3 John Deere discs welded together, and its hard to kill. Ive had better frames on past targets, but im sticking with this idea for center sections ! NOTE: Green tomatoes & watermelons did not hold up quite as well today ![img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/038/jk/Om/Zn/CH34753.jpg[/img]

I should have mentioned.. they are PLOW discs welded together in-line with about a .250" air gap between the 3. Havent used any "real" AP yet against it, but steel core 7.62X54r & SS109 wont phase it.

Take some 30-06 Black Tip AP against that target. And yes, I believe those hay bails will stop a .223

My older sister used to shoot at similar targets in front of a cornfield behind our house. The farmer did have problems with part of his crop being contaminated. I was about 6 years old at the time, so I don't remember the whole story, but there were issues with using corn as a backstop.

No contamination fears here, this entire crop is going to the ethanol plant so it can power your car someday.

Nice target!!! You have to try a chunk of 3/4 in. thick steel beam! I got a piece off work and hung it at 100yards. The only thing that came close to going through was a 300 win mag.You got to let it swing or the bullets go right though. Here is a pic.

The bales in this pic are 6 feet tall,6 feet thick & about 1200 pounds each. They will tumble & stop about anything. I dont think id use one for cover if I had a choice, though !!
