Finding the best AR500 steel targets for sale isn’t an easy task. There are so many different kinds available. Swing or silhouette? Pop-up or static? Do you need IPSC steel targets or not? That’s why we put in the time to do our research. We looked at some of the best-selling items and most popular brands to put together these AR500 target reviews. Let’s take a look at some key features you should know before we get to our reviews.
Type: We chose a few different types of targets. Most of them are swinging gong types but there are a few silhouettes, too. One even gives you the option between swing and silhouette. Plus, we found awesome jumping and pop-up targets.
Stand: For some types of targets, a stand is required. Specifically, if you have a swing or silhouette target, you have to have some way to mount it. We did find a few that have a stand included.
Thickness: Thickness will determine the caliber of the ammo and the power of the gun you can use with each of these targets. Make sure you’re not using something too powerful, it could really cause a lot of damage.
Pieces: Most of these are singles targets. That said, we did find one really awesome set that we included that has 5 targets in it. Plus, the items that come with stands included often have more parts.
Warranty: Warranties vary. Some of them we were just not able to find warranty information on. Keep in mind that for any target with a warranty, you have to follow the guidelines as to what and how far away to shoot.
Size: Get the size that you need to work on your skills. Obviously, the larger the target, the easier it will be to hit. If you’re experienced, get something to challenge yourself! Amateur? Get a size you’ll learn from.
