Steel Targets on Range

November 28, 2015

Panteao Studios utilizes steel targets at this facility exclusively from Action Target. Action Target uses only high quality, through hardened steel with a Brinell hardness rating of at least 500.

Even with high quality steel targets, you must maintain a safe distance from the steel in order to minimize the risk of injury to yourself and damage to the steel target. The following distances are required at this facility:

22 Rimfire: maintain at least 10 yards from the target.
Handgun Calibers: maintain at least 10 yards from the target.
Shotgun Slugs: maintain at least 100 yards from the target.
Rifle Calibers: maintain at least 100 yards from the target.

Do not move the steel targets from where they are positioned on the range. After using the steel targets, please paint them with either white or black paint. Paint is available at the facility at no charge or you can use your own.

We have already had instances of club members using rifle calibers on the steel too close and severely pitting the surfaces of the steel targets. Please follow the rules for shooting steel targets in order to prevent any further damage to the targets.

Thank you.
