The Short Range Rifle target has been completely redesigned. It now features an AR550 target and a new swinging hanger to make calling hits easier. Parts are not interchangeable between the new style and old-style short range rifle targets. Our short range rifle targets were designed for law enforcement agencies, gun clubs and individuals looking to shoot centerfire rifles closer than 100 yards. Our design uses an AR550 target, an angled mounting bracket and an extra-large base for stability. The angled mounting bracket helps prevent much of the pitting common with shooting rifles closer than 100 yards. This pitting can become dangerous as it may send fragments back at the shooter. This allows the target to be used up close and at longer ranges.
This target has a tilt stop to keep it from tilting backward under rapid fire, making this one of the only FULL AUTO RATED rifle targets available.
The bracket is fully hidden behind the target protecting it from impacts. The bolts are rugged Grade 8, 1/2” carriage bolts. Even though they are Grade 8 they will need to be replaced periodically due to bullet impacts. If you have any questions about the testing that was performed to determine the safety of the target, please feel free to contact us.
This target is rated for 223(3000fps MAX MV) and 308(standard 150gr ball) at 50 yards. Using this target closer than the recommended distance will void the warranty and poses higher potential for safety hazards. Closer use may be permitted provided they are used by law enforcement agencies and professionals under close supervision. These targets are NOT TOYS! They are designed for use by trained professionals. Improper use at these ranges can lead to serious harm. If you have any questions about use, please contact us before going to the range.
The purchaser is responsible for ensuring safe use of this product. If the target or components become damaged, they MUST be replaced. Contact ShootSteel.com should you need any replacement parts.
Minor assembly is required with this product. All of our stands and hangers are designed to accept 1/2″ hardware (included) which will require you to use power or hand tools to tighten. Wrench/socket size for 1/2″ hardware is 3/4″, adjustable wrenches may be used as well. All stands will require two tools (one to hold the nut, one to tighten the bolt), while hangers will only require a single tool as the shoulder of the carriage bolt will lock into place via the cutout on the target.
