The 50BMG mounting system was designed with one main purpose. To protect the chain mounting hardware from a direct hit, resulting in having to repair the mounting bolts or hardware. The three bolts on the face of the target hold the 2nd plate tight against the two bolts that hold the chain. The two chain mounting bolts are protected by the 3/4” thick AR500 steel target in front of them. Even if one of the front mounting bolts were to be shot out, the remaining two would hold the two mounting plates together. This is a design unique to ShootSteel.com, a design that sets our product ahead of the competition.
DOES NOT work with the basic gong targets!
