These 50BMG rated targets are constructed of 3/4” AR500 steel. The target is designed to keep the chain and mounting hardware away from the shooting surface. This will extend the life of the chain and mounting bolts and yield less down time for repair. When paired with our chain and mounting bracket the target will take many hits to the mounting area and chain

50BMG AP and API – NOT RATED

The rated ranges are a minimum. You may need to move the target back based on your specific load and barrel length. Keep in mind these rounds are designed to go through steel.
DO NOT under any circumstance use closer than the rated range. The projectiles for the most part are either steel core or solid brass. The bullet “splash” can be very dangerous at close range. DO NOT use any armor piercing or incendiary bullets.
Objects near the target will get damage by the splash and can cause ricochets. Remove any unnecessary objects from the shooting area, including in front of , behind and to the side of the target. In addition make sure there is a proper back stop behind the target to stop any misses.
