Steel targets are shooting targets for firearms made out of hardened (martensitic) steel, and are used in sports such as cowboy action shooting, practical/dynamic shooting and for long range shooting, as well as recreational plinking. They are popular in both training and competitions because the shooter gets instant feedback on a hit in the form of sound, and one can also often see the bullet getting pulverized and the target moving. Hanging or self-resetting targets also have the advantage that the shooter need not go forward to tape the targets, making it a good option for shooting ranges that otherwise have electronic targets. Steel targets also are weather proof, contrary to paper targets that do not hold up when wet.

    Help with AR500 targets

    I have a handful of AR500 targets (3/8 and 1/2 in thick) that need a 3/4in hole placed in them to accomodate my new target stand. Anyone have the tools needed to help with this? I`m willing to pay or trade for ammo. Thanks, AO
