50 Cal Exploder & Base
Made of 1 inch thick AR500 Armor Plate Steel

Made of 1 inch thick armor plate and when used with our 50 Cal. base (included) it holds the target at a 30 degree forward tilt to deflect bullet fragments down and into the ground.
Always innovative in the design and robust construction of the finest targets, Salute is proud to offer a new product based upon requests from the military, law enforcement, and long range shooting communities. It is ideal for sniper training, particularly .50 cal., .338 Lapua, and all other long range heavy calibers.
This new Salute ‘Boom Box’ .50 Caliber Heavy Duty Exploder Target is based on the largest .50 Caliber ‘Sure Shot’ Target in the world: the .50 Caliber Tiger Tank Exploder Target (see our Salute video and other applicable sections). This more mobile, less expensive, smaller version, incorporates the same outstanding ‘Boom Box’ that is attached to the back of the Tiger Tank Exploder, but with a smaller, round front plate frame. This works great alone with all calibers from .50 cal. down to .22 cal., or for even more excitement, with various loads of Sure Shot (tested and approved with ½ pound, 1 pound, and 2 pound shots). For shots under ½ pound jars, you can use multiples of ½ on up in teaspoon full increments). Great variety of exploder options. Note that when shooting steel beyond 1,000 yards, you no longer hear the impact of the bullet on steel. Thus the need for a binary explosive such as Sure Shot.
