These are definitely AR 500. I tested them with my M & P .223 at 50 yards, and barely a ding was made. I bought 5 of these at a reasonable price to be used at my outdoor range, and got the chains also just to save me a trip to the store.

My only qualm with these was the way they were shipped. Oh my, I was so sad for the mailman as the package had come apart and the pieces were everywhere. Again, 5 gongs of various sizes and 5 sets of chains were ordered by me, and they were crammed in one USPS box with a board in the bottom to supposedly secure them. Of course, the box couldn't handle the weight. It was in shambles. My friendly postman, thank God, is a nice fellow who made sure I got all of my order. Please guys, I will order from you again if you promise not to use a flimsy, tiny box to ship my stuff. Maybe you can use multiple boxes.

Otherwise, I'm happy.

Style Name: e- 10" GongSize: 4- 1/2" AR500 Verified Purchase
These are the best targets ever, I just came back from a weekend of shooting these targets took about 3000 rounds and it barely looks like it has been touched. There are some small depressions but, nothing major at all. We shot this with a 30.06, a 7.62 long steel core ammo, at about 25 yards and it did not even leave a mark, we shoot it with .45, .40, 9mm, 5.56 from about 15 ft and nothing on the targets.

These are some of the best targets I have ever used, I am going to buy more of these for sure.

Style Name: h- Killzone Gong 10"x16"Size: 4- 1/2" AR500 Verified Purchase
I purchased the AR500 Big Game Kill Zone target a week or so ago. I wasn't expecting it to arrive until sometime after the 1st of the year. However, when I went to pick up my mail yesterday, low and behold there it was. I was so excited. When I got home, I put a coat of fluorescent paint on it, just to help it stand out in my sights. After the paint dried, I attached chains and set it up at approx. 100 yds. I plinked it a few times with my AR-15 and checked for any damage. Nothing, nada, not a single dent. Just the paint was chipped off from the rounds bouncing or disintegrating against it. This is a target that will stand up to the punishment and last a lifetime. I've made targets previously out of mild steel that work OK, but soon become punched full of holes. I can already tell that won't be the case with this target. I love it, and look forward to pounding the heck out of it. As a plus, the shipping was super quick. A great target at a super price! I've now added a second photo that shows what .223 does at 100 yards.

Style Name: e- 10" GongSize: 4- 1/2" AR500 Verified Purchase
I bought this gong to shoot with my M1 Garand, as well as my friend's 8mm Mauser, and Mosin Nagant -- all big, powerful rifle cartridges. We were not disappointed.

The seller shipped my target within one business day of taking the order, USPS Priority Mail. Despite USPS' assertions that it would take more than a week to get here, I got it in three business days.

The edges are well ground with no burrs, and the mounting holes are 1/2'' diameter so you can stick some fairly beefy bolts through it to hang it up.

Though the seller plainly states that you should not use this item with steel-core ammo as it will damage it, we shot it both hanging at 75 yards and sitting angled on the ground at 50 yards with our various mil-surplus steel-core rounds.

At 75 yards, my .30-06 M2 Ball Ammo made the tiniest, lightest little scratch on the surface. At 50 yards (and without the benefit of it being hung to allow it to swing backwards), 8mm Mauser slugs made only a very, very shallow pit (maybe 1mm wide).

These are clearly uses of the target which are not advised, and it held up beautifully. In private use, even abusing it like this, you would need thousands and thousands of hits before the damage would ever amount to something significant. Even ignoring the warning about steel-core ammo (which voids the lifetime warranty), this is still a lifetime target for most shooters.

It's a bit pricey, but it's probably never going to need to be replaced.

One bit of warning: Buy the beefiest chains and toughest bolts you can if you're hanging this target normally. The impact from the big rifle hits you're going to apply (and you are, if you're shopping for this 1/2'' model... :) ) will twist and bend the bolts. Shrapnel from the bullet jackets can easily chew up your chains. Expect to replace these often, and always bring some spares when you head to the range.

The target is surprisingly simple and easy to put up. The target is well built and solid. It easy to hang almost anywhere, all you need is some chain and bolts. It is more versatile than the more costlier targets from the big companies. The target works well for the guy on a tight budget and you can easily transport it and set it up in minutes. The target shipped on time and arrived when promised.

Want something to last FOREVER? Well pull that cash out your pocket and then blast away. I have made swiss cheese out of every metal target I have ever bought. This one yawns at whatever ammo you throw at it and says "WHATever, that's ALL you got???"

What, you STILL reading this? BUY it already....

I went to the range today to test out the target with my 7.62x51mm surplus ammo. Not even a dimple! I was shooting at 200 yds and it was a solid sounding plink when it was hit with my ammo. I sent about 50 rounds of 7.62x51 mm to the target it looks just like I received it. I'm sure I'll get years of usage out of this before I need to replace this one. Now, send me my 3" plinker! haha! :-)
