Steel Gong Target Features
Certified AR500 Steel Made in the USA
All good steel gong targets start with having the right type of steel. AR500 steel or better is the gold standard in steel target shooting. All our steel gong targets are made with pride right here in the USA. With proper care, our targets will last a lifetime. Flip the target around and use the other side for even longer life. Dimensions: 4”x3/8”
CNC Laser Cut
CNC laser cutting generates less heat and keeps the target edges strong. Moreover, with laser cutting, you will also get a cleaner smoother cut. Many target companies use the cheaper CNC plasma cut process to save money. Plasma cutting can overheat the metal and change the hardness of the target leading to more edge chipping shortening the life of the target.
We powder coat all our steel gong targets in white, so they are ready for action. This may seem like a small thing but covering a raw steel target with paint can eat up a $5 can of paint really fast.
½” Square Carriage Bolt Holes
Laser cutting our targets allows us to put 1/2″ square mounting holes in the gong shooting target so they can accept a carriage bolt. Using carriage bolts makes it easier to mount your targets as you only need one wrench. Carriage bolts also have a smooth round head so there is less of a chance ricochet keeping your range time safe. If your looking for a easy safe way to mount your gong targets, check out our mount systems.
Shooters and spectators must always wear proper eye and hearing protection. Shooting targets with full metal jacket, steel core, slugs or rounds traveling over 3000 fps may cause minor dents or craters. (remember you are shooting steel with steel). Never shoot armor piercing or steel bird shot at any steel target. Using a deformed or damaged target can lead to injury. Minimum distances are as follows: 10 yards for pistols and 100 yards for rifles. Please review our caliber chart for minimum distances coordinating to your caliber. Buyer assumes all responsibility for the use and misuse of the purchased steel targets.
