About Steel Challenge
Steel Challenge – Smoke & Hope is one of eight official SCSA (Steel Challenge Shooting Association) classifier Stages. The Steel Challenge Competition is a very fun sport for shooters of all ages and skill levels. This practical shooting competition involves speed and accuracy as you race against the clock to improve your time! Competitors shoot each target when the timer starts, ending on the designated Stop Plate, which stops the timer. Competitors will do each stage 5 times, taking their best 4 times combined as their score. Outer Limits is the exception, which will be the best three out of four strings. Adding each stage together gives the competitor a match score, lowest score/time wins the match!

This Steel Challenge Target Package – Smoke & Hope
Steel Challenge – Smoke & Hope includes (4) 18″ x 24″ and (1) 12″ AR500 Steel Targets cut from 3/8″ Steel. Additionally, this package has the option to add our Static Target Hangers and Heavy Duty Static Stand. We’ve selected/recommended the Heavy Duty Static Stand these packages to avoid shifting of the target as you shoot, even the heavy 18″ x 24″ rectangle targets. The Steel Challenge – Smoke & Hope package is also meant to be fixed with 2×4’s so you can cut the length to match the correct heights for regulation competition. This comes especially handy on uneven ground!
Even for the deadeye marksman can chew up 2x4s in a hurry. We recommend our 2×4 protectors plates to help with that – They come as 12″ protector plates or 20″ protector plates.
All targets ship unpainted. Shipping pricing only applies to the lower 48 states, via best method. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional shipping inquiries.
