PING Yourself Some NEW Champion “Center Mass AR500 Steel Targets”

Center Mass AR500

We can only go to the range so many times punching paper before we desire something more. Whether you switch it up with bowling pins, Tannerite, or water jugs. Many shooting enthusiasts crave reactive targets. Something to create that visual and audible reaction of a successful shot. As Shoot-N-C targets, Tannerite, and many other reactive targets grow with popularity so do AR500 steel targets. Champion understands this and unveiled their “Center Mass AR500 Steel Targets” as a result.

Center Mass AR500

66% IPSC Center Mass AR500 Steel Target

Champion Traps & Targets now manufactures AR500 steel targets in 5 different dimensions.

  • 8″ Diameter Gong (3/8″ Thick AR500)
  • 8″ Diameter Gong (1/4″ Thick AR500)
  • 4″ Diameter Gong (3/8″ Thick AR500)
  • 66% IPSC (3/8″ Thick AR500)
  • 8″ Square Gong (3/8″ Thick AR500)

All of these targets have 1/2″ holes to hang them with a sturdy carriage bolt, or simply chains. All of the 3/8″ thick targets will tolerate rifle calibers; whereas, the 1/4″ thick target is only good for pistol cartridges.

Champion exclaimed their praise for the new AR500 targets:

Nothing beats the instant feedback and satisfying ‘PING!’ when a well-aimed shot hits a steel target, but not all steel is created equal. AR500 Steel is hard enough to withstand
multiple calibers at the appropriate distances. Center Mass come in three different shapes and sizes, allowing for a customizable shooting experience.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.
