That's what it was designed to do.
And i guess my thought process is that hardened steel is designed to prevent penetration. It would be different if i was talking about penetrating a car door.

I've been looking around at tests other people have done. Even real, hardened Armor piercing 30-06 rounds did not penetrate 3/8 plate consistently at 100 yards. So i would assume 1/2" plate would not be penetrated at 200 yards with regular steel core; maybe just some pitting. Of course it's still their house, their targets, their rules, but I was just curious.
