Steel Targets

WMS Firearms Training’s range of reactive steel targets has been designed, developed and proven from experience, research, and trial and error to become the line-up we offer today. Originally designed for use at our own shooting facilities in mid Wales, WMS steel targets are also now used in training courses and for qualification shoots by most of the British Armed Forces sniper training centres, thanks to their robustness and longevity.

Our steel targets are increasingly bought and used by sporting rifle shooters, stalkers, varmint shooters and target shooters who want to further practice and improve their rifle shooting. The instant audio and visual feedback from steel targets helps to promote faster and more precise shooting.

Our targets are made of through-hardened high tensile steel of proven ‘recipe’ and strength and are virtually indestructible, resisting bullets and cracking from thousands of impacts. We recommend targets of 10mm thickness for mid-calibre rounds and 15mm thickness for use with .338 LM and .50 BMG respectively.

WMS targets are precision cut on computer-controlled machinery using methods which ensure the edges are not softened due to heating of the steel, thereby resisting chipping. Stands are available for soft and hard ground as required.

WMS steel targets are available in designs including military Figure 11, discs, hostage targets and an increasing variety of life sized quarry shaped options. Crows, rabbits, foxes, muntjac, roe buck, wild boar and Marco Polo sheep form the basis of the current range with buffalo, red deer and other designs available to order.

WMS is still regularly using original targets which are some eight years old. One of these had 5000 rounds of .338 LM fired from 200m at it during some ammunition and barrel testing and then over 1000 rounds of .50 BMG. It is still intact and useable. 5000 rounds of .338 LM costs about £20,000. The target cost is around £350.

All targets come with a safety information sheet and are ISO9001 compliant.

All targets are made to order, not sold from stock. Completed orders will be delivered to clients within 30 days of confirmation. Payment of the invoice is confirmation of the order. Delivery costs vary: please contact us for a quote. Please see below for target prices.

We can also design, manufacture and supply custom animal silhouettes, reactive targets, reset targets, and police/military targets.

We have supplied our targets to many UK Constabularies and British Regular and Special Forces. References available on request.
