  • What are some tips to maximize the life of my Angry Hornet AR500 steel gong?
    • Always keep bullet point of impact speed under 3,000 fps.
    • Never use steel core, steel shot, or armor piercing ammunition.
    • Maintain a minimum shooting distance of 10 yards for most pistols and 100 yards for most rifles to achieve the correct point of impact bullet speed.
    • Always allow target gongs to swing freely and mount on a 20 degree downward angle, especially for rifle use.
    • Flip the gong from time to time to utilize both sides evenly.
    • Visually inspect each target with each new type of ammunition used, and with each new shooting distance.
    • Adjust ammunition type and shooting distance as necessary in order to maintain target integrity.
