Second layer of the 3/4" rubber stall pad wasn't much better than the one. Just added layers 3 and 4. Hope to get out tomorrow for some testing. I am thinking if this doesn't work I will add a steel plate behind the rubber.

If you are planning on using mild steel for your backer, do not shoot center fire rifles at them.

I had some thick scrap steel and 223 and 308 will go thru 1/2 to 3/4 inch steel at 100 and almost thru at 200.

I knew the targets wouldn't last but I didn't expect to have one shot laser a hole in it.

Most of the targets on my range are 1/2 or thicker AR-500 at 75', 50 yds, 100 yds and 150 yds. Shot some 30-06 AP one day and it did dimple a couple of my 5/8 swingers at 100 yds. Won't do that again.
