Learn about our STEEL Targets

Manufacturing Process

Our targets are perfect for long-range and high velocity rifles. Our American made steel is laser cut to ensure that our clients are getting only the best, most durable, metal targets on the market. Due to the laser cutting process, only 1/16th of an inch of the metal is annealed past the cutting line. Whereas, other high-heat cutting methods can compromise the hardness of the entire steel plate.

Cutting Steel with Water

Most companies won’t tell you that cutting steel with a water jet is the most effective. This is most likely because they are all using lasers, as we do in our process. The water jet is much more efficient in keeping the temperature of the cutting medium in a range that doesn’t effect the hardness of the metal. The water jet uses an abrasive garnet within the water stream to cut the steel. This allows the material to be cooled during the cutting process. The result is a product that has suffered almost no effects from the cutting process.

Creating steel targets this way is more expensive. To most consumers, the added expense doesn’t justify the small difference in target quality, so many manufactures simply utilize the laser to make their products more affordable. However, if you appreciate top quality and understand why we prefer water cutting, you've come to the right place for your targets.
