This target as are all of our 3/8" AR500 steel is rifle rated too making it another versatile MGM product for handgun, rifle and shotgun use. Of course, it's made in America!
The 8 inch target is one of the few targets that have been used at many of the Cowboy Action competitions, for shotgun targets. It comes standard with the "foot flag" that so many people shooting light loads have grown to hate it! The principle is, when you hit the target solidly, it goes down and the foot flag comes up. The 'sheriff' can see a flash of whatever bright color you choose to paint the bottom of the foot with and confirm it was a good hit. If he doesn’t see the color, it wasn’t a good hit, and the cowboy gets dinged for a miss - No real cowboys were shooting light loads!
MGM HexPlate™: MGM's exclusive HexPlate™ hexagonal shaped targets are made of premium MGM AR500 steel. The hexagonal shape offers up to 13% more target area than the same size round plate, and everyone will see the immediately recognizable MGM hex logo shape and know it as a genuine MGM Targets product, synonymous with quality, reliability and value.... Leave Nothing To Chance™.
Please note, early iterations of some MGM hexagonal shape targets were made measuring ‘tip to tip’ measurements. Since that time, all MGM HexPlate™ targets have been standardized with the hexagonal shape measured by ‘flat to flat’ dimensions which correlate to a 13% larger area than the same diameter round plate. The ‘flat to flat’ standard has also been adopted and approved by the USPSA. We apologize for any inconvenience. - 17 August 2016
