For serious rifles, you will want serious targets. This AR500 Steel Gong Target is built to last under even the most extreme use. We precision cut our targets using a CNC Laser to reduce any heat affected zone. You’re left with the most durable and longest lasting target on the market, so don’t confuse these with cheaper plasma cut targets! If you don’t want to take our word for it, see what LynxDefense has to say about them! Spoiler alert: They rank us #1!

1/2″ is perfect for rugged use, and are rated for all handgun calibers and rifle calibers up to .338 Lapua Magnum at 200 yards. If you are unsure what thickness you need, please consult our comprehensive Cartridge Guide.

We recommend hanging this AR500 Steel gong target using 15″ Steel Chain and fixing to either a 2×4 A-frame or conduit gong stand. 2×4’s work great for a cost-effective way of hanging your target, especially with our hybrid hangers a and 2×4 gong stand brackets. Keep in mind, 2×4 legs will get chewed up. Conduit will  hold up better, and can even withstand direct hits and still be usable. We offer our own gong stand, but you can easily make you own and save some money. Purchase 2″ EMT conduit for the cross-member and 1.25″ EMT, cut to whichever length of leg you desire (found wherever you get your building materials). Our 2″ EMT gong Stand Kit. will have cover the hardware.

If you’re looking to get the 12″x20″ or smaller, our T Post Gong Hangers work well with two T Posts and some chain.

All targets ship unpainted. Our Shipping is priced to the lower 48 only, and will ship via best method. Contact customerservice@shootsteel.com for additional shipping inquiries.
