What is the maximum force recommended for the Rx Target Systems all steel target?
The steel target has taken sustained commercially available pellet shots at 75 foot pounds at 30 yards and 90 foot pounds at 75 yards on 1/4” thick paddles. With 10 gauge paddles (140 thousandths of an inch thick), its limit is 31 foot pounds at 21 yards. Testing with commercially made airgun pellets as well as Specialty ammunition testing is still on going. If using specialty ammunition it is recommended to purchase the 1/4 inch thick paddle set. We test for rebounding and deformation of the paddles.
