What Are AR500 Steel Plates?
When shooting targets for practice, choosing the right type of target plays an important role in terms of safety, skill and enjoyment. From a satisfaction standpoint, steel targets can’t be beat.
AR500 steel is the preferred material for steel targets. It’s an abrasion resistant alloy with a Brinell hardness number (BHN) of 500 that can withstand repeated hits from high velocity, large-caliber handgun and rifle rounds. Some AR500 steel targets have been known to survive more than 10,000 hits. Conversely, targets made from steel with a BHN below 400 are susceptible to pocking, cratering and deformation, which affects their integrity, shortens their useful lives and can be a safety hazard to the shooter and those standing nearby. Only targets made from high quality hardened steel should be used for practice.
