PERFORMS BETTER, RINGS LOUDER AND LONGER
C-Bell-6 Targets are made from the highest quality AR500 Steel and are free of bolts or brackets leaving a smooth shooting surface. The only steel target that ALWAYS faces the shooter! C-Bell portable steel targets are the FIRST EVER 360° shooting targets. The cylindrical design allows shooting from any angle while maintaining a consistent dimensional shooting surface (CDSS). C-Bell “ping” rings on for several seconds while conventional flat steel targets “ping” dissipates almost immediately.
C-Bell Targets were tested by an Independent 3rd Parting testing facility. Deflection testing was done using “witness boxes” to determine the angle of deflection. After shooting numerous rounds, the path of the bullet fragments was assessed by examining the marks left on the witness box. During a center strike, as the bullet shatters on impact, the majority of the fragments spread out at less than 7.8-degree angles from the target head. This area, which forms thin triangular shapes to the front, left and right of the target, is referred to as the “spall” area.
Sound Test Results
Independent 3rd Party Sound Testing results indicate C-Bell Targets ring duration far exceeds flat steel targets.
Center impact shots- handgun rounds
“In all cases, the cylindrical samples had smaller maximum spall angles as compared to the flat steel sample. Both the 8″ AR400 and 6″ AR500 samples not only performed very consistently when faced with the same threat for multiple shots, but also had very consistent results when compared against each other regarding performance under identical test conditions.” The spall angle range for the AR400 vs. 9mm FMJ was 7.5°. The spall angle range for the AR500 vs. 9mm FMJ was 5.2° to 7.1°. *
Glancing impact shots – handgun rounds
In three (3) out of six (6) shots [3 center shots, 3 glancing] with 9mm FMJ ammunition against the cylindrical samples, there was no spall in front of the samples. Both 8″ AR400 and 6″ AR500 samples provided only produced spall behind the sample when they were impacted with glancing edge shots. When using C-Bell Target keep a 30° safe zone on each side and behind each target for glancing rounds.
