What is SR500 Steel?
SR500 is a ballistic protection steel specifically designed for use in targets, ranges and other armor applications. SR500 has a minimum hardness guarantee of 500 HBW, making it a superior alternative to AR500 plate. Grizzly Target’s SR500 Steel is produced on the same production line as SSAB’s high quality Abrasion Resistant (AR) branded steels such as Strenx and Hardox.
The above was a professional test using 7.62 x51 149gr M80 FMJ from 10m on a 3/8″ thickness plate. All 20 hits were on the same spot, without any penetration! See the actual test results on the left.

SR500 STEEL FAQ
The recommended distance is the same for SR500 Steel Targets and AR500. We design our targets to deflect shrapnel towards the ground to increase safety. However, proper distance should always be maintained.
- Pistol Rated Targets at 25 yards and further
- Rifle Rated Targets at 100 yards and further
Yes, we laser cut all of our SR500 and AR500 steel targets to ensure they are built to last. At Grizzly Targets, we use a high power laser to give us cleaner and faster cuts. Laser-cutting ensures that there is little to no heat added to the steel targets allowing it maintain its hardness all the way to the edges. Laser-cut targets are cool to the touch immediately after cutting.
Although SR500 Steel is harder and more consistent than AR500 Steel, armor piercing rounds will damage/destroy the steel. This is because SR500 has a 500 HBW guarantee while armor piercing ammo is 600-2500 HBW. Learn more about SR500 steel and its qualities here.
The consistency of SR500 steel allows us to make exact recommendations for your desired ammunition. Example: We can now reliably recommend ⅜” SR500 Steel Targets for any non steel projectile under 3000 fps at 100m with no pitting. For more information on target selection visit this page.
This will always depend on the user. If you use steel targets frequently or want to make sure you are going to have a consistent experience, then we would recommend investing in SR500 Steel Targets. If you only use steel targets occasionally and are following proper guidelines, maybe not. However, you should consider the safety aspects of this new material.
All supporting brackets and stands go through our galvanization process to ensure maximum durability. Our SR500 and AR500 target faceplates are strictly painted and never galvanized. You can read more about our galvanization process here.
