I did a review on a new target from Grizzly Targets, I took the target to the range and let our band of misfits try it out. I performed as expected with no damage.
Things have been pretty hectic lately but I want to do a follow up on the target. We have had it to the range a couple more times.
These targets are made of AR500 steel and hold up extremely well against all we have thrown at them.
On the last trip to the range one of the guys was sighting in a 300 Win Mag rifle with hot hand loaded ammo. The target had been set out at 25 yards for pistol work and I invited the shooter it put a couple rounds into the target which he did. After close inspection it revealed a slight dimple but no real damage and due to the way the target hangs the bullets were deflected into the ground just a few feet behind the target.
On this same day I had also shot the target with a few rounds of 7.62 X 54R with absolutely no sign of damage
Shown here is the target after being hit with the 300 Win Mag, I see no reason for a person to want to shoot this target with this kind of fire power at this close range but it goes to prove it can handle it with no damage and even more importantly it does it safely meaning ricochets were not an issue.
In the past I have spent a lot of time and money building targets only to have them destroyed under normal conditions so it is nice to have something that will last and the money I save can be used on better things like ahhh......more ammo for example.
