The problem with mild steel of any thickness is that it will get dented and when you just have to see what a high velocity bullet does, it will get cratered. Any irregularity will throw pieces of bullet back at the shooter. The IPSC minimum distance to a steel target is 11 meters and even that is not enough if the plate is rough.
