This is another one of those that a customer asked us to build for him, and then it got out of hand. We are grateful to Mr. Skip Harris who is involved with training at West Point, for presenting this idea to us.
The head shot overall area is 3.5″ wide x 1.75″ tall, with the “eye” area 1″ x 3.5″, and the “nose” area 1.25″ wide and .75″ tall. Chest is a 5″ MGM Hex shape. All target plates are constructed of HEXALLOY 550. That’s why we call it a precision rifle target!
Target doors are available in two different thicknesses. Specify Standard Duty for .223 and pistol, or Heavy Duty for .308, 300 Win Mag, etc. It should be mentioned that the door material is EXACTLY the same for the standard and heavy duty doors. The reason we make two different weights of doors is, a .223 won’t reliably open the heavy doors, and a .308 slams the standard doors so hard they bounce shut. If you are sniping with a .338 Lapua, please call so we can quote you prices on a more heavy duty silhouette, and MUCH heavier doors.
WE KNOW THAT THIS TARGET WILL BE ABUSED, and probably shot much closer than a sniper should be shooting it. Just like cardboard or paper targets, the doors should be considered an expendable part, and when they start getting pretty shot up, please call and order replacements. As it is, the doors are interchangeable so you can put the bottom on top, and vice versa.
Also available with heavy doors for .308, .300 Win Mag, etc. at a slightly higher price.
