Who makes steel targets 12 inch round or square.
Nobody makes nicer targets than @Field & Cave
Thanks Dusty. Our 1/2" targets are actually AR550. 12" round is a standard size. I know we have a few in stock and can cut some more within a few days.
You can check them out here:
Field and Cave can supply stands, hangars, accompanying hardware and targets. One stop shop and top notch..
Yes they have your needs.
They are good targets but everybody should read about shooting steel. They post a chart for both 3/8" and 1/2" on their site. I have seen people shoot them at close range, not good.
AR500 target plates are mostly the same regardless of who sells them. What is of more importance is how easily they can be deployed. Nobody wants to buy target plates only to have to invent some sort of contraption to hang then only to have it fail halfway through a shooting session. Sawhorse stands fall over on hills, wood stands splinter and retain razor sharp jacket fragments and ALL of them are difficult to transport.
Hang Fast Targets uses the ubiquitous T Post as the platform and has designed a very simple hanger that allows multiple target plates to be hung on the same post. The system retains the target plates 100% and allows them to be reactive and audible.
I'm glad Hang Fast is in this thread. I've ordered twice, expanding my stash for varied scenarios, and they are quick and easy.
Bought a T post thumper and the angle they naturally deploy makes them super safe. Absolutely outstanding service to boot!
1. "search" here for ar 500 steel targets. Several venders, also;
2 . Check Amazon, they have / had AR 500 targets, the last ones I bought were 12" circles w/ a 3" cut out "flapper" Plus they were shipped FREE
Our twist on the T-Post bracket. All 3/8" AR500 construction
I really like the t-post stand! Do you sell those? I couldn't find them on your site. It's damn near impossible to get t-posts into the ground out here....
They took off like lead balloons. I think we have 4 left that I'll make you a deal on. If you can get the post an inch or two in the ground it should work great.
I have some Taylor targets I shoot I think the gong is 10 or 12"
Hang Fast has a T Post stand that is adjustable for terrain. Most stands require flat, level and relatively smooth ground to be stable. The Hang Fast All Terrain T Post Stand can stabilize heavy targets on steep and uneven ground.
Here is a video of the stand being set up on a steep pond bank with a full size silhouette hostage target. I'm shooting it with 12 ga buckshot @ about 15 yards. No stakes were used to fasten the stand to the ground.
The stand is armored with AR500 3/8" in the front.

We use the medium flat rate targets from Field and Cave. 3/8 AR500, 13+ inches tall by 11+ inches wide. 3 of these rectangular targets will fit into a flat rate shipping box for a good deal. They work great!
Thanks for the info.
