Bobcat Steel was founded by shooters, for shooters, to meet the demanding needs of the shooting community. We offer an ever expanding line of AR plate targets ranging from the mild to wild.

Most of our targets are 3/8" AR500 steel, but we can get you targets up to 2" thick if requested. 3/8" AR500 is good for both pistol and centerfire rifle cartridges. We recommend 10yds minimum for pistol rounds and 100yds minimum on centerfire cartridges, regardless of thickness. .223/5.56 will leave minor pock marks in the surface of the steel at 100yds, but at any distances greater than that you are just leaving lead behind and removing some paint. Targets are not intended for steel core rounds. These rounds will increase the wear rate on your plates and shorten the lifespan of your target. Eye protection must be worn at all times when shooting steel.

Standard sizes are always kept in stock, but we run new targets every couple weeks, so we offer up the chance for you to cater the targets to your needs. If you need a different hole location, hole size, plate size, or even a 3' tall zombie, we can help. If you already have a plate rack, or dueling tree, or any other base and you need a new target face....get us your bolt pattern and we will get you covered. If you have a picture, we can turn it into a target.

We use USPS flat rate boxes for shipping whenever possible. Yeah, our Post Office hates us, but it is a small price to pay to get targets into your hands cheaply

We are always open for one off jobs as well. Drop us your idea and I'll help you get it done.

We pride ourselves on being easy to work with. Give us a chance. I promise you'll come back.
