Who has some scrap metal? - October 29, 2014, 09:47 AM

Looking for some scrap that will hold up decent to

.308 API
7.62x54R API
30-06 AP/API
50 BMG AP

I don't mind some pass throughs but was thinking maybe some stuff like a couple manhole covers, I beams, etc. Prefer something that will fit in a pickup truck to haul off.

There isn't much scrap that is going to hold up to 30 Ought & 50 BMG.

I hear you have a spare engine that could be used for target practice.

Meh, aluminum...nah.

Even a couple of inches of mild steel would be decent. I was thinking a couple of manhole covers back to back.

whats your definition of hold up? Man hole covers are brittle, like engine blocks. You need to find a plate of AR500 and even then a BMG AP round will seriously damage the surface or go through depending on how thick it is. Any AP/API round will do some damage to a normal AR500 plate

"Hold up" meaning maybe the .30 cals struggle and get close with the 50 having a cleaner pass thru?

Was thinking about AR500 plates, 1/2", etc...but I didn't want to cough up the money. You know how the 7.62x54r crowd can be!

+1, unless you are shooting way out, 50 is going to put major hurt on AR500 in a hurry

You can do scrap, but any AP round is going to put holes in it no matter what it is. Since you would continuously be swapping out the scrap and finding a way to mount/stabilize it to use it for a target you'll eventually surpass the cost of a real AR500 target. If its a one-time thing then sure, but otherwise just spend the money now on something that works. Not to mention the pain in the ass of cleanup and disposal of fractured scrap metal

Quick scan of Amazon shows various AR500 1/2" gongs available from $45 - $120.

Everybody shooting puts in $15-20 - and for the cost of half a box of ammo, you'll have something you can reuse many times.

As long as you're not using API. Seriously, save that stuff for Red Dawn time. Even though ammo is expensive, I'd rather go buy some BTHP stuff and work on marksmanship - leave the API in an ammo can for a rainy day.

^Exactly what I was going to say. I hate messing around with gongs and sewer lids. I did have fun mangling up a cast iron skillet one time with the AR though. Still had me nervous.

I just want to see what it can do, API isn't something one would really "need" to use ... ever.... unless you are in a situation where you feel you "need" it. Then you probably REALLY need it. I would just like to know the capabilities and limitations ahead of time.

If you're worried about needing it or knowing what and how to use it, I can recommend some classes you should take.
