400 works just as well.
the fabrication doesn't stop in the shop, that's what the field guys are for.

I can bear testament to the fact that Brian's targets have held up extremely well, and I know they've taken a beating.

Brian is a busy man and he's a man of few words. He made his own targets and as far as I know he hasn't made any for other people unless it was as a favor. He has the knowledge of the types of steel, he's a welder, and a damn good one.
As far as I know he was just letting you know that for target purposes 400 works plenty well, you don't have to go 500 if availability is an issue.

I don't know if his arm can be twisted or not, like I said, I know he's a busy man, and with that being said, his free time is valuable to him.

I know you would rather buy local, but I thought that I would throw out that I got some targets from here: http://www.arntzentargets.com/ and they are superb!

I picked up a few 8'' circles that I use for handgun practice.

This pretty much sums it up.

I would love a few of those targets for the range! Shipping adds up quickly though - unless a bulk purchase and shipped to a business. Thinking bulk purchase??!!!

Bulk purchase sounds good as a first thought but are all participants within reasonable driving distance? My free time is worth at least $10.00/hour, then you have the cost of fuel, and don't forget, if it takes an hour to get somewhere it's going to take an hour to get back.
If you're looking at it from a purely economic point of view and there's more than a few miles between buyers, individual purchases would probably be the best unless there's a hell of a discount for buying in bulk.

Check your local shops, they may have a connection to get something at a fairly reasonable price, even after their markup.
