Good Deal on Steel — LV Steel's Reactive Targets

One of our favorite forms of competition is varmint silhouette at 400 to 600 yards. It’s difficult to see hits on paper at these distances, so we like to use a reactive target during practice sessions. Gongs are good but they’re a bit oversized for this kind of work. A smaller-sized, self-resetting “popper” target is ideal. LV Steel Targets LLC. offers a full range high-quality, durable, and reasonably-priced steel targets, including the spring-loaded “poppers” we prefer. Designed for hard use from centerfire rifles, LV Steel’s targets are made from rugged 3/8″ or 1/2″ thick Armorcoat 500 steel plate. Spring tension is adjustable and the targets break down for storage and transport. With a fresh coat of white or orange paint, you can see your hits several hundred yards away.

LV Steel’s owner, Kurt Stone, tells us: “We have shot thousands of rounds at our targets and never had one break. They have been tested with .300 Win Mags at 200 yards and did fine.” In 3/8″ thickness, Target #1 is $165.00, #2 is $155.00, #3 is $145.00, and #4 is $220 (shipping extra). Our friend DesertFrog reports: “I’ve had a #2 target for the last 4 months and it has become the only target I take with me in the desert. On my 6.5×20 I could easily see the hits up to 747 yards. It’s easy to take with you and install. A definite MUST if you go shooting outside a range. The quality is awesome.”

LV Steel Targets also offers swinger targets (photo below) and stationary targets on steel posts. You can preview all the targets at LVSteeltargets.com. If you have questions, or need a custom target design, contact Kurt Stone, (702) 258-7597 or info [at] lvsteeltargets.com.
