Each SD Scrap Yard Target is made from the same steel we use to manufacture our body armor plates and side panels — from 1/4" thick 500 Brinell hardness armor plate steel which exhibits high-hardness and are certified NIJ Threat Level III. Steel Defender's targets are not made to be pretty or to have a clean polished appearance. These are made to be an affordable target option for your range that will hold up for some time and has easy to replace strike faces once you have hammered on them. Both the frame and targets are one piece construction allowing for no weak welds or other pieces to assemble. These are ready to shoot out of the box. Replacement of the target area strike face can be done with a simple twist on and off. Best of all these can be staked into the ground with ease, making setup absolutely painless.
Steel Defender would like to remind you target shooting can be dangerous, shooters and spectators should always wear appropriate safety gear and use target in a safe and controlled environment. While these targets will survive close range shooting, please use good judgement on safe shooting distances as steel targets by nature do ricochet. Shooting is by nature very dangerous. Shoot steel targets at your own risk.
