Default AR500 targets

Hey all,
I bought a couple AR500 gongs from a vender (So Cal Target works) at the OC gun show last May. I guess their not what I hoped they were. They both held up fine until I hit one with my new 24" barreled AR (5.56)


I recall when we were at the show in May there was another vender selling AR500 targets. He was located in the north east side of one of the east buildings, he had lots of targets and I'm pretty sure he was from the IE because I remember his business card had a 909 number. Does anybody have any contact info on this other vender?

Mention CalGuns and the IE chapter, he will give you a discount.

That's odd, Are you sure it was AR500? What was your distance? I have an AR500 plate target that we make, Would you like to borrow it, see if you could make a hole through it?

Can AR500 targets be punched through by the green tip penetrator 5.56 rounds?

I've been calling the # on their website for almost a week now (909) 394-1225 ?
Was planning to buy the full size IPSC target with stand. I understand they offer discounts to local Calguns members? Any more info on that would be appreciated.

I looked for a contact email on your website, didnt see a link to one. Will you make a custom shaped target? I have a specific need for a specific shape that will handle 556 and 308 impacts. Kindly

The way understand it, AR500 should stand up to 5.56 green tip.

Be careful. I recently bought some targets that were advertised as being AR500 that were definitely not. I got lucky and got a refund.....and am now stuck with some decent non-magnum pistol targets

What was the distance to target, type of firearm and mounting method of the target?

Did you punch right through it?

We have a guy that uses our targets for training and shoots them with his AR at 15 yards with green tip...so far no need to replace the target lol

XM855 green tip
DelTon 16" carbine
50 feet.

Freak'n A man, that's messed up ! 50 ft is close, but a .375 thick target should have been able to stand up to that no problem. I can say, I've shot my steel targets way closer than I should have (7 yards FTW "testing" HEHEHE) and I've never even had close to something going through them.

Was the XM855 lake city or was it PMC X-TAC?

I've heard the X-TAC is some hot loaded ****, but never seen something like that. Did you have any pictures?
