    Carver-I used to keep my old phone books just for that reason. I stacked probably 8-10 together,duct taped them in place so they would not shift and fired my 7.62X39mm SKS into it several times before there were any issues. It was not long term use but served my purpose well.

    I tried some old catalogs and after about 100 rounds I had confetti all over the back yard. That was just .22's. It was cool to see how far they penetrated though and how much lead stayed in between the pages.

    Just put 75 rounds of some Aguila Sniper SubSonic in about an inch of each other and the new plate doesn't have the slightest bit of indention. These were some big ole 60 grain rounds moving around 700 FPS. I think I found a winner!

    I would just adjust my shot placement after 5 shots on each target with the .22's....7.62 was just 3 rounds.
