316 is difficult to machine, but it won't hold up to bullet strikes like AR500 plate or other heat treated steels will. I would second the suggestion to hang it out farther ... it will get hit less often and with lower energy strikes ... it will last longer that way! Scrap that is ready to use is ALWAYS a good find ... even if it isn't the perfect material. On the positive side, it will not rust, even in your part of the world!
