    I know there are quite a few places online to order steel targets from. But is there a "go-to" place that most consider a great vendor?

    I'm not looking for anything fancy.....just a couple of round plates.

    Thanks.

    Unless you just refuse to go to Walmart they are a good go to for a couple of basic round AR500 targets.

    Probably as cheap as anybody else and you dont have to pay for and wait on shipping.

    eBay seller kylharn is best I’ve found at reasonable prices. His 1/2” thick AR500 plates are durable.

    I've bought a bunch from Arntzen and Quality Targets and have been 100% satisfied over 1000s of hits. Last couple 2/3rds IDPA silhouettes I bought came from Bullseye Metals off of Amazon. They were only $99 per 2 and have also served well.

    Another recommendation for kylharn on eBay. Free shipping and low prices. They often have sales and 25% off if you order 2 or more items.

    Thanks for all the great pointers. This definitely put on my radar vendors I wouldn't have found on my own.

    Thanks again.

    I have been happy with Arntzen and JCSteel. There are no doubt other quality suppliers.

    Where are you located? Much of what you pay for steel targets is shipping due to weight and bulk.

    Make It Ring is having a sale on 5/8'' AR 500 targets. Just ordered three on the advice of this thread.

    I go to the steel supplier in a nearby town and get AR500, or AR550, sometimes he has waste pieces for a fe bucks, and some time one of his guys will cut it into shapes for me,,,,and drill holes too

    CDNN had 2x4 post topper hooks and spike attachments for the bottom for 13 bucks a set recently. I bought 7 sets, and then four 8”, two 10” and one 6” 3/8 AR 500 plates from magnum target. These plates take 5.56 fmj with minimal marking, handgun with zero marks and the wood posts can be any height you want.... plus you can toss it in the fire place when it’s shot full of holes.

    My other AR 500 targets are 7/8 th size ipsc torso silhouettes that are 1/2 “ thick. These weigh a ton and won’t work on 2x4 posts, but will take thousands and thousands of shots

    Stay safe!

    Just bought the 5/8 X 12 inch from them. Can not beat the deal with the free shipping. Will buy from again.

    I thought I'd follow up................

    Late Monday night I ordered an 8" and 4" gong from Make It Ring targets. Very early Tue morning I got notice they'd shipped. FedEx said they'd be delivered Friday. Cool. Fast order processing.

    Not sure what happened with FedEx - but they arrived *today* (Wed)!

    $27 to the door for two 3/8" gongs. Awesome.

    Thanks all!
