I’ve got some land up in WV and was thinking of setting up some steel targets. I know at the CQB class we used frangible rounds. The manufacturer of these 550 plates claims that they can be shot as close as 25 yards without pitting. Does anyone have experience with these type of plates? I’m planning on engaging them at ranges from 25-100m, do you think it’s safe to engage those type of targets at those ranges with typical 55gr type ammo? I’m assuming anything closer I should for sure use frangible.
I have ar500 steel targets i shoot green tip at them 10yds and out. Does it wear them out faster, maybe. My last set lasted 5 years, 8″ plate is $30 bc steel $100. They dont pit where I have to worry about bounce back, when they wear our they crack.
