It features two 5/8” diameter holes on the ears for gong mounting and one center 5/8” diameter hole for stand mounting. The target is rated for use with most pistol and rifle calibers.

When used as instructed should provide years of reliable use.
The 8 inch round gong is a great addition to a home shooting range or a personal target stand setup. It’s also suitable for a tactical practice course or a public shooting range. Built for durability and performance, our AR500 steel targets are designed to withstand repeated use – the only upkeep needed is an occasional re-application of paint! Our AR500 8 Inch Gong targets make a great addition to our Full Conduit Stands or X-Base Stands – just remember to grab a set of our hardened carriage bolts!
Shooters and spectators must always wear proper eye and hearing protection. Shooting this target with full metal jacket, steel core, hollow point bullets or slugs will cause minor dents or craters (remember you are shooting steel with steel). No shotgun slugs, steel bird shot and buckshot ammunition should be shot at steel targets. Never shoot hardened, steel core or armor piercing ammunition at any steel target. Do not use a steel shooting target that has been deformed or damaged. Buyer assumes all responsibility for the use and misuse of the purchased steel targets.
