I have just placed an order for two more of these targets. They are the best deal I can find. They have held up PERFECTLY! We mostly shoot from 300 to 600 yards with .223 (not penetrator), .308 Win. .300 magnum and have even shot them at 600 yards with .50BMG ball ammo. The .50 bent the mounting bolt but did NOT harm the target. I am more than happy! They need to make 18″x30″ silhouettes for a great price.

I feel I should update my review. Upon closer scrutiny, the .50 BMG ball did leave a SLIGHT crater on four impacts and a dent, barely noticeable, on one of the shots. Everyone, all seasoned shooters, were genuinely surprised, if not shocked, that there was not more damage. This was a static hung target, not a chain hung target. Therefore in my opinion, it took a harder hit from the 685gr. round. Also, this is not a 50BMG rated target, we shot it knowing (or so we thought) that we would ruin the target. We were all wrong. And while I wouldn’t make a habit of it, it did withstand the big .50 onslaught. Just keep Impact below 3150fps is what I keep hearing.
Great targets, Just received two more of these targets. My first two I have had for a year with a lot of abuse mostly .223 but other rifles from 22-250 to 300 h&h at 200-300 yards. No dents plenty of edge shots with no damage to the edges. Close to 1000 impacts on the targets. Best deal I could find anywhere and free shipping! Awesome product!
I’ve shot these with .223 from 200-500 yards with everything from 55 grain soft points to 75 grain BTHP’s. I have also shot them with 9mm through .45ACP. The targets are holding up very well. I am totally satisfied!

I have bought six of these for our club (with just the middle hole). We hang ’em on a spring loaded carriage bolt on a T-post mount. Been through some T-posts, but the targets ain’t going nowhere ! Like to order more like it, soon as I find the phone number again so I can spec what we want.
These are really great steel targets. Bought a pair of these via e-bay. Brought them home in the Philippines and have shot it with 9mm, .40 SW and shotgun rounds and they have held up really well. Steel targets rock! Will be buying more from this company.
