TARGET REFERENCE & USER GUIDE

  • NEVER shoot them at less than 30ft. Never ever. Not with anything.

  • Hang them so they can swing freely upon impact.

  • Always have a berm or bullet trap behind the target. You will miss occasionally.

  • NEVER shoot a target in motion. Wait for them to stop swinging before engaging again. This is very important, especially at closer ranges.

  • ALWAYS wear ear and eye protection - especially when shooting steel!

  • YOU, the shooter, are solely responsible for your own safety and the safety of others and assume ALL risk & liability when shooting our targets.

  • NEVER shoot any green tip penetrator (SS109, M855, etc) at any range at steel targets. It is designed to defeat them!

  • SPEED KILLS - to ensure long life and surface integrity, keep velocity at impact below 2,800 FPS

  • If the target gets pock marked or dished, turn it around and shoot the other side. 


The table below will help you determine minimum safe ranges & help ensure the longevity of the targets. These are basic guidelines/ rules of thumb that are subject to change based on many factors including: Your specific load, atmospheric conditions, elevation, how targets are mounted, angle of attack, etc.
