Premium 1/2″ AR550 Steel Target – 8″ Round


  • Static targets are perfect for short action rifle and pistol
  • Cut from Premium Swedish Steel
  • CNC Laser cut for a minimized heat affected zone


For serious rifles, you want serious targets. This 1/2″ AR550 steel target was built to last, using only the best steel and cutting practices. Do not confuse this target with a cheaper plasma cut target, this has been precision cut using a CNC laser in order to minimize the heat affected zone and to provide you with the most precise and smoothest edge possible. Don’t want to take our word for it? See what LynxDefense has to say about them! Spoiler alert: They rank us #1!

Designed for centerfire handgun use and rifles up to .300 Win Mag. Rifles shooting over 2800 FPS muzzle velocity should be used no closer than 150 yards, in addition,  long action rifles should be used no closer than 200 yards. These are great targets for clubs, instructors, and individuals.

We rate our AR550 steel Target for the same distances as our AR500. AR550 is significantly harder, and mitigates the ‘pitting’ effect better than AR500. This is especially noticeable with higher velocity rounds, such as .223/5.556 NATO. For more information, check out our article “AR500 Vs. AR550. What’s the Difference?”. There’s a video testing it out there as well, with a side-by-side comparison!
