I decided to expand my collection with one of TacStrikes 1/4 Scale Steel Target Systems this year.
The system comes with a base that can accept 1″X2″ or 2″X2″ wood stakes if you want to shoot paper, and a center pocket that accepts the target rack post.
The 1/4 scale silhouette is made of AR500 steel and “floats” inside the rack so that it can absorb impacting rounds without having to swing or rock. It also lets it ring like a bell.
The AR500 plate destroys incoming rounds:
The .40 S&W and .223 I put on it were reduced to powder and flat disks of jacket metal:
If you are in the market for some steel check out TacStrike.
Good stuff at good prices and the owner, Rob Tackett, is good people.
