SKU B07VLTH2V5 Category


Take your shooting range up a notch with this complete seven-target AR500 steel gong set. Includes powder-coated targets in 2″, 3″, 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″ and 12″ diameters made from ultra-durable 1/2″ thick AR500 steel plate. Designed and crafted to endure thousands of rifle and pistol rounds without deterioration.

Rugged 1/2″ AR500 Steel Construction

The gongs are precision cut from abrasion-resistant AR500 steel using CNC plasma cutting. This heavy-duty carbon steel alloy is hardened to resist armor piercing rounds up to .50 BMG. Targets withstand repeated rifle shots without splintering, pitting, or mushrooming. Just instant, satisfying PINGS as rounds vaporize on impact. The 1/2″ thickness provides unmatched durability compared to thinner steel.

Stop Rounds Up to .338 Lapua Magnum

AR500 steel absorbs incredible force, stopping rounds up to .338 Lapua Magnum, 7.62×51 NATO, .308 Winchester and similar calibers. Use with rifles, pistols, shotguns and muzzleloaders. Sticks to standard velocities under 2850 fps at 50 yards to prevent pitting. Handles magnum loads better than mild steel that dents easily.

Set of Seven Targets

The complete gong target set includes:

  • 12″ diameter gong
  • 10″ diameter gong
  • 8″ diameter gong
  • 6″ diameter gong
  • 4″ diameter gong
  • 3″ diameter gong
  • 2″ diameter gong

Challenge your aim at various distances with targets ranging from 2 to 12 inches. Mix and match for exciting shooting courses. Add smaller plates for pistol target practice.

Precise CNC Plasma Cutting

The gongs are precision cut using a CNC plasma table to ensure uniformity and quality. Edges are smooth and targets are cut square every time. Plasma cutting melts the steel edge as it cuts, preventing burrs. Targets also pass through an industrial deburring machine to clean any remnants.

Water Cooled During Cutting

Submersion water cooling applied during the plasma cutting process maintains the structural integrity of the steel. Preventing overheating keeps targets flat and straight. No warping or distortion. Water cooling also minimizes discoloration, keeping the original clean silver steel color.

Pre-Drilled Holes for Hanging

Each gong has pre-drilled mounting holes for easy hanging. Use 1/2″ carriage bolts secured with nuts and washers to hang targets. Hang with chains, cables, brackets or a portable target stand. Rotate and rearrange targets in limitless configurations. Hardware for hanging is not included.

Highly Visible Powder Coated Finish

Gongs are finished with a tough powder coated paint in daylight fluorescent orange for high visibility down range. Provides excellent contrast against range backstops and helps spot hits. Powder coating also protects against rust and weathering, extending service life.

Withstand thousands of rounds and years of shooting with these 1/2″ thick AR500 steel gongs. Bring the excitement of active steel targets to your range!

Customer Reviews

Heavy duty gongs!

These AR500 steel targets are built like tanks. We shoot them just about every weekend with different calibers and they don’t even have a dent. Great quality and value.

So fun to shoot!

I love the instant feedback these gongs give when you hit them dead center. My shooting skills have improved just by getting that instant gratification. Highly recommended.

Massive improvement over thinner targets

I’ve bought cheaper steel targets before that eventually warped and pitted after a few range sessions. These 1/2″ AR500 gongs look brand new after hundreds of rounds. Worth the investment.

Take your marksmanship to the next level with these durable, heavy-duty AR500 steel shooting targets!
