That’s music to the ears—like the sound of the Liberty Bell.

I’ve been to several shooting events at which I got to shoot on MGM Targets steel, and I haven’t found any other targets that are of higher quality.

These can crack or break, thereby damaging the target and leading to possible splatter.
