Can your steel targets be shot with steel core and/or solid copper bullets? 2016-09-22T08:35:29+00:00

Never shoot steel targets with steel core or solid copper bullets. These rounds can damage, and even penetrate AR steel. When the surface of a steel target becomes pitted and deformed, it is no longer safe to be shot.

Are your targets cut with a laser? 2017-05-12T08:02:39+00:00

It is a common misconception that steel targets must be cut with a laser, or water jet, to maintain their hardness. We cut our targets with plasma over a water table, and achieve superb results. The water from the table keeps the steel’s temperature low and quenches the cut edge, maintaining its hardness. As you can see, our AR 450 performs perfectly, displaying no dents or warping: https://www.instagram.com/p/9JMK2qLTQb/?taken-by=drummondshooting
