The general shape of this target is based on a United States military E-Type paper target beloved by soldiers and Marines in WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, but with the unique combination of a double-hinged interior 3/8 inch plate and an external frame optimized for .338 bullet weights and the demanding nature of that high-velocity round. It should be noted that this target/swing plate combination is specifically designed for the 300 Grain Sierra MatchKing round. Other high-velocity ammo can be shot at it, but may not elicit the same smooth opening and closing action of the target’s relatively heavy swing plate. For example, when this target was tested using 22-250 Remington, various loads of 5.56 & 7.62x51, .30-06 and .300 Win Mag, with those rounds it requires more precision to hit the outer half of the swing plate to make it reset.
All of our targets are made of the highest quality steel that survives the elements. They’ll last through rain storms, high temperatures, multiple coats of paint, and just about every caliber you can aim at them.
Salute Targets immediately confirm your increasing speed and accuracy with the bullet’s plinking sound against the metal, to give you instant satisfaction and assessment of your performance.
They are designed for protection and safety, built with angles that deflect bullet fragments to the ground or side, and not towards the shooter.
