50 cents is a little steep to pay per shot..... id do what salad said and do that it would be cooler and probably more accurate(cuz target shootin is sweet)

The problem with concrete is that it's relitivly low density (about 2g/ml compared to copper's 9g/ml). Steel is much better, at about 8g/ml, and is available cheap in barstock; about 3$ a foot for .5"
