    Default thickness and size of steel

    im looking to buy some hardend steel to shoot at with my .300 wm
    i was thinking of about a 12"x 18" steel plate
    heres the question... first, how hard would the steel have to be? and how thick would it have to be to withstand the punch???
    and if possible how much would you think it would cost for somthing like that?

    You need armor plate, like ar500. You can do 3/8" thick with that but I wouldn't use it closer than 200yds. (might still be okay at 200).
    I've put holes thru 1" steel plates at 200yds with a 308 so you're gonna need armor plating.
