MGM HexPlate™: MGM's exclusive HexPlate™ hexagonal shaped targets are made of premium MGM AR550 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
After every shot, the thin steel shaft allows the target to move (assuming that the marksman hit the target). In a close range application of repeated hits on the target begin to move side to side. Usual movement will be 6-10", depending on range, caliber of bullet, etc. - Plenty of motion to need to work for the hits.
What Will It Stand Up To? - During our testing, we shot the Double Lolli-popper from 30 yards with 1,000 rounds of .223, 20 rounds of 30.30, 60 rounds of .223 SS109, and other various rounds. While you do see some dimpling on the front of the target, the back of the target remained completely smooth. Nothing had enough of an impact to bulge any part of the back of the target. I need to mention that, while we hammered it at 30 yards, the target life expectancy will be severely reduced if you are shooting it at that range. I would hope that 50 yards would be a minimum. We did shoot it with .338 Winchester Magnum. Don't be shooting this target with a .338 Win Mag. At least not at 30 yards. This round went through so fast it didn't have time to bulge the back of the target. If you are a bullseye shooter, I wouldn't recommend this target for you. Our intent was that this target would be used as an assault/competition training tool. If you are constantly hitting one of these targets in exactly the same spot from about 50 yards, 1) you are shooting too slow, and 2) you'll probably be able to eat your way through it. You should have no problem with standard 30.06 and .308 cartridges at 100 yards or more. Give it a shot!
