The steel targets produced by CMP are made from AR500 hardened steel for long life and minimum damage due to bullet strikes. The stands, bases and mounting brackets are made from normal steel and can be damaged by repeated bullet strikes, and will not withstand rifle bullet strikes. The design of the targets protects much of the base with the AR500 target face, but occasional hits will occur. The hardware used to mount the targets is Grade 8 and will withstand bullet strikes. Replacement hardware is available for sale.
