Our 8″ AR550 gong target is 8″x ½”. It features two 1/2” diameter carriage bolt holes on the ears for gong mounting and one center 1/2” diameter carriage bolt hole for stand mounting. The AR550 target is rated for use with most pistol and rifle calibers. AR500 Target Solutions’ precision CNC laser cut targets are rated to 3000 fps at 100 yards. They are fully reversible with white powder-coating paint on both side for quick visual reference on direct hits. When used as instructed should provide years of reliable use.
The 8″ round AR550 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 AR550 steel targets are designed to withstand repeated use – the only upkeep needed is an occasional re-application of paint! Our AR550 8″ 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 targets with full metal jacket, steel core, slugs or ammunition traveling over 3000 fps may cause minor dents or craters (remember you are shooting steel with steel). Never shoot armor piercing or steel bird shot ammunition at any steel target. Also, do not use a steel target that has been deformed or damaged. Minimum distances are as follows: 10 yards for pistols and 100 yards for rifles. Please review our ammunition chart (link) for minimum distances coordinating to your caliber. Buyer assumes all responsibility for the use and misuse of the purchased steel targets.
