How that plate is doing

The plate is actually mostly bent. At the time of firing it was actually just taped on both sides to the target and then had a larger steel plate about 4" behind it. Based on the shape of the impact, I'd guess that it actually bent till the first place touched the back on and then the projectile pinched them. I wonder if we could have gotten penetration if it had been better mounted.
