I need to remember to multiquote, but anyway... 20x40 is a standard size. I'm surprised he lets people shoot steel that close. Would you really want to set up something like that short of 500? I mean it's trivial to hit it even at 500, and if you want to measure groups paper would be better. I love steel because it's easy to tell hits without a spotter, and the sound is so rewarding.
I saw something on youtube the other day that explained the steel used... I'll see if I can find it and let you know.
