AR 500 targets for long-range and high velocity rifles

Our American made steel is laser cut, so only 1/16th of an inch of the metal is softened past the cutting line. Whereas, other high-heat cutting methods can compromise the hardness of the entire steel plate.

Our targets provide a distinct sound upon bullet contact, allowing the shooter to be sure of a definite hit. The overall shooting experience is enhanced by allowing the target to swing and quickly adjust to a second shooting point. This saves the shooter from having to manually reset the target. When a target shows wear, simply wipe it clean, touch up with fresh paint as desired, and it's ready for more action.
