yes sir that is the price, im not making anything off of this, but this will be handled thru my work. this is out normal customer price. the reason its less compared to stores is cause the one selling it is usually third in line. this is coming right from the place making it.

as far as the hold/mounts/ etc, that is just my personal time im using to come up and draw it all out so no charge of any sort.

remember sizes can be custom, if your not worried about the edges being a beautiful perfect cut, i can also plasma cut and it will further reduce the price on the cutting.

here is my email if you want to contact me

the machine shop that this will be done at is:

McAdoo Machine company
McAdoo, PA 18231

i would perfer it to be picked up. i do travel around PA a lot, harrisburg, gettysburg, state college, so if i do go on a trip id be more then happy to bring them with a drop them off as long as its not to far out of my way.

if all else fails we can ship, but shipping on ar plate will not be pretty. the point of this is to help out those who support the nation, give them a price break since all the guns and ammos are price gouged right now. i know ill take a price break anywhere with the price of ammo when i find it.

i have price on AR400 as well your looking at about 21 dollars per square foot or 645.00 for a 4 x 8 foot sheet.

some one asked me if i could do IDPA targets, yes i can. its measurements are 22 x 34 1/2 inches. something like this would be rounded to the nearest square foot. so this would be rounded to 24 x 36 inches or 6 sq/ft.

we charge per sq/foot of material. just figured id let everyone know before hand

Just a thought about the cost of shipping;

If you could be satisfied with a target of 5.375" X 8.625" or smaller you could ship 3 or 4 of them in a flat rate box (depending on 3/8"" or 1/2" thick) for less than $6.00.

A medium box would hold nine targets 3/8" thick or six targets 1/2" thick and up to 13-5/8" x 11-7/8" for $12.35.

A large box would hold eight 3/8" thick or six 1/2" thick up to 23-11/16" x 11-3/4" for $14.85.

The only restriction is that the weight can't exceed 70#.

the stuff weighs 12-15# a square.
the fabrication doesn't stop in the shop, that's what the field guys are for.

The density of steel is .28356, so what that means is...
a medium box...13.625x11.875x.375x.28356=45.9 or 46 lbs's per target.

If anyone wants a custom shape I can get you a DXF file.

awesome!!! i know a guy already contacted me about IDPA (sp?) targets. i didnt know the deminsions of it but i wouldnt mind having a file of it for those who do want it.

i wish we could use the computers at work so we could draw things, but those are restricted to the managers and blueprint guys

It sounds like the guys are doing it right, particularly with water jet cutting. I'd like to mention that plasma cutting the steel can soften the edges and where the holes are, due to the heat on the steel. It sounds like these guys probably work with it quite a lot, but it can also be softened by welding. From what I have heard from talking on the phone to some of the big name manufacturers, you want to use small beads and let them cool to the touch before you do another, as opposed to welding a solid bead on it.

As far as using AR400 steel, that may not work for some people's applications. I can tell you that if you use any sort of magnum or "hot rod", you're definitely going to crater the steel. I don't even shoot my AR500 water jet cut steel at less than 300 yards for a reason. The AR500 steel is supposed to take strikes at around 3,000 fps, or less than 3,500 ft/lbs of energy. I can tell you that shooting things like the .22-250, .243 and some other calibers with certain bullets can EASILY surpass this number at closer ranges. I can also tell you that quite a lot of bullets in the magnums can easily surpass this number. I know lots of guys are going to want to shoot this at 100 yards or less, and I'm trying to warn people right now. You WILL crater and mess up and/or affect the longevity of your target if you're shooting even AR500 at closer ranges with calibers that are moving over 3,000 fps and/or over 3,500 ft/lbs of energy upon impact. I've marked 3/8" AR500 steel (not badly, but still noticeable) at 100 yards with 55 grain fmj bullets out of a 16" barreled AR before. If you're shooting it at closer ranges, you need to flip your plate over sometimes to keep it from getting concave. When it gets concave, you can get ricochets or bullet fragments being directed at you.

It's also worth mentioning that the way that you mount the steel will also have an affect on the longevity and life of the steel. If you mount these to a post, you definitely want some sort of angle so that part of the kinetic energy is deflected downward and the steel doesn't have to take 100% of the beating. If the steel can swing (on chain, water hose, fire hose, etc) I think it last even longer and is less likely to be damaged. You guys can do whatever you like, but I own and shoot 3/8" AR500 steel regularly. I just want to warn people what they're in for, so that they don't get upset if they damage what most people would consider pretty expensive targets. AR400 and AR500 steel is very hard, but it's not indestructible.

Thank you for the info. In the Industrial world, its considered a wear resistance plate for contact surfaces. i got some AR500 in the other day and were actually starting to make vest plates. im working with some comapines to try and get a deal on the anti spall coating for them. The most recent order i placed for 6 sq/ft of AR500 ran me $39 dollars per sq/ft. price has gone up a little and it not being a full sheet it was delivered ups from our supplier.

i will make a note that right now, the supply is low on AR500, most of our usual suppliers have been out for a while, there are a few large contracts across the nation that have been buying up most of the supply, im guessing government, but the suppliers couldn't confirm it.

If people are still interested, my offer is still open, depending on shipping and all the price might vary as time goes on.

I understand the local thing, you fairly local to me!

Ebay has ar500 Alot with free shipping, there no the best cut steel like my shootsteel.com targets but that work just fine.
