    Top two .303 (steel jacket fused)... bottom three .308

    Looks like the 303 FMJ punched holes thru, or maybe it's just the lighting.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    your right does look like that, but Like it says, it's just the jacket metal fused to the plate

    All relative, we were shooting at 200 yards with no issues, that would be long range in most Ontario deer hunting circles . Farmers fields, not quite that long range, ha ha.

    Long range is relative to your calibre as well.

    .22Lr 50 yards is a good poke.
    100 yards is long range.

    .223/5.56 100 to 200 yards is a good
    poke.
    300 yards is long Range.

    .308. 300 yards is a good poke.
    500 is a long poke.
    500+ your doing some math.
