I’ve got one of these rebar setups & it works really well. I’ve not had any issues w/ it falling over, tipping, etc. I hang a 25% IPSC from mine. I don’t pound the legs into the dirt. I just set it up & forget about it.I am using 2x4’s and cheap prefab folding sawhorse brackets. It works, but the 2x4’s do indeed get shredded so a regular replacement schedule is a given, frequency dictated by how often you’re using it. It’s no big cost either way, might as well just go steel from the start. I think rebar and the bracket/rubber hanger kit from JC is what I’ll get next.
I had brought some thinking the same but the conduit was easy to push into the ground.I do the exact same thing except I use rebar instead of Conduit. I find it more durable and easier to place on hillsides/odd angles as you can easily pound the rebar into the ground
By far the best hangers I’ve tried, and I’ve ran quite a few combinations. I can set up 2-4 targets per T post with these, and they’re made out of AR500. They’ve taken quite a few direct impacts without any damage. As far as target setting I’ve got a UTV I can get to almost anywhere I need to set them with. Worst case scenario I have to hump them 100-200 yds. Luckily a T post and driver isn’t very heavy for short hikes. The target is usually the heaviest depending on what size were running.
I haven’t ran into that issue yet. Most of my shooting is beyond 1000, and usually with a 6 CM. I’m guessing I just don’t have enough velocity left to damage the t post.those hangers work well but what i didnt like was that my T posts ended up getting shot and would break...it still happens with my newer hangers but no where near as often
At most matches use fire hose, conveyor belting etc.. for just the reason you mentioned or but most targets are close enough and small enough like a 6" diamond at 400 or ipsc silhouette at 1000+; so they tend to be light enough to react.Thats the idea. Chain can get broke off with one perfectly bad shot, the rubber can absorb many more before getting cut off.
Sorry to hijack but can anyone pm me that has the MI 15 inch handguard for the RPR? Im having issues with installation. Much appreciated!
I have those from shooting targets 7 too. They work well. I also have stuff from: MKmachining https://mkmachining.com/product-category/ar500-targets-mounts/ Hangfast: https://hangfasttargets.com/ and shootsteel: https://www.shootsteel.com/is that from shootingtargets.com?
I have a set of these that I just slide a 2x4 through and they work great, very easy set up. https://shootingtargets7.com/accessories/target-stands/target-stand.html
