Why Choose SR500 Steel Targets?

Unrivaled Durability

Our SR500 steel targets are crafted from steel with a Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) exceeding 500, making them exceptionally durable and superior to AR500 steel. Shoot round after round with confidence, knowing that your SR500 target can withstand the toughest challenges and still deliver outstanding performance.

Safety First

Safety is paramount on the range, and SR500 steel targets excel in this regard. With their superior hardness, they minimize the risk of dangerous bullet fragmentation and ricochets, keeping you and your fellow shooters safe during every session.

Consistent Performance

Experience the joy of consistent target feedback with SR500 steel. Reduced deformation and dimpling ensure clear hits, allowing you to fine-tune your marksmanship skills and track your progress with ease.

Cost-Effective Investment

While SR500 steel targets may have a slightly higher upfront cost compared to others, their extended lifespan and reduced maintenance expenses make them a smart long-term investment. Enjoy the benefits of a target that lasts, saving you both time and money in the long run.


Recommended Use of SR500 Steel Targets

To make the most of your SR500 steel targets, it's crucial to follow these guidelines:

  • Shooting Distance: Maintain the appropriate shooting distance for your specific SR500 steel target. For handguns, a minimum of 10 yards is recommended, while rifles should be used at a minimum distance of 100 yards.

  • Target Angle: Set up your SR500 steel targets with a slight forward tilt (approximately 20 degrees) to deflect bullet fragments downward, away from you and bystanders.

  • Ammunition Compatibility: Use the right type of ammunition to preserve your target's integrity. Avoid armor-piercing rounds and any ammunition designed to penetrate armored surfaces, as these can damage or destroy SR500 steel targets.

Why SR500 Is Not Armor Steel

It's essential to understand that SR500 steel, while exceptionally hard and durable, is not classified as armor steel. Armor steel typically features a much higher BHN hardness, ranging from 600 to 2000 or more, and is designed for military applications. SR500 steel is engineered for shooting sports, providing unmatched performance while maintaining a high level of safety.
