60" x 60" Target Stand with (2) 12" AR500 Steel Gong Targets & Attachment Chains
The AR500 steel target gives immediate feedback on whether it's a hit or miss in the form of sound, and you can also often see the bullet getting pulverized and the target moving.
AR500 steel is an abrasion resistant steel often used in mining, material handling and other high wear applications. Due to its material properties, AR500 steel also makes great rifle grade targets.
These targets are made to be shot with center fire rifles from at least 100 yards and handguns from as close as 10 yards. Always wear eye and hearing protection.
