This steel was part of a bulk truckload buy. It is our old stock AR500 but was purchased and cut in bulk in order for us to be able to provide these extremely discounted prices. This is not our typical surplus steel in that there will be no pitting or surface rust. All of the steel was shot blasted prior to cutting.
Perfect for short action rifle use as well as high volume pistol use, these 3/8" AR500 steel targets are made to last. Like all of our targets, they have been precision cut using a CNC Laser in order to reduce any heat affected zone leaving you with the most durable and longest lasting target on the market - do no confuse these with cheaper plasma cut targets! Targets include mounting holes cut to accept 1/2" hardware, we recommend using at least grade 5 hardware which will be included with this product.
This popper is a combination of our Magnum Spring Popper and our Static Pepper Popper. It will be slightly reactive due to the springs used between the target and the stab in base, and will have great audible feedback due to the nature of the design. Once assembled, this product is extremely portable and sets up in seconds.
These 3/8" AR500 targets are perfect for short action rifles up to .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor and all pistol calibers. Pistols should be used no closer than 10 yards for calibers up to .45 ACP, and no closer than 25 yards for all magnum caliber pistols. Rifle use must be limited to 100 yards minimum, and 200 yards for rifle calibers with velocities exceeding 2800 FPS. If you are unsure what thickness you need please consult our comprehensive Caliber Guide.
