Reactive Metal Targets

Just want to give a shout out to a fine company of veterans who make some mighty fine AR500 metal targets;

http://shootingtargets7.com/store/

I have delt with these folks, buying some of their 3/8 & 1/2 inch AR500 gongs, and they hold up very well from all the ranges I've tested a 3/8" thick one from with one of my .45 patch-n-ball rifle's and a 65 grain load of 3fg.  Ranges I've tested so far have been - 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80 yards on an 8" x 3/8" gong.  It makes a nice ringing noise when hit as well, so if your not certain you hit the target, the ring will let you know (though I've not ran into this problem as yet).

Our club has been looking for good AR500 gong targets that don't cost a fortune, and these are the ones.  Good prices, good targets, they should last a lifetime especially using the soft lead round ball.  I have no doubts they would hold up equally as well to conicals.  Did I mention good prices and made by veterans!http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Reactive Metal Targets

Went to the site kinda like the fact there made in the US by veterans. I might just order a couple just to play around with.

Re: Reactive Metal Targets

The link I posted for shootingtargets7.com seems to be down right now.  Perhaps they are updating?

Re: Reactive Metal Targets

I ran across this video sometime back and thought I'd post it here for those that like the reactive target woods walk game. There's actually several of these to watch. I find them fun to view.

Re: Reactive Metal Targets

That was kind of cool. But did they say that one diamond-shaped target was in front of a rock wall.

Re: Reactive Metal Targets

Yes, he did say that. It was at target #11...  Well, we know that's a safety issue that wasn't thought out very well.
