As a company, we are always trying to push the envelope when it comes to our steel target systems. The Rifle Dueling Tree is no exception!
We took an already awesome platform, and turned it into something that NEEDS to be on every range. Our other Dueling Tree is pistol rated only, and it serves a great role on the range, but we knew our customers wanted something even stronger, something that can easily take the beating from a rifle.
Our Rifle Dueling tree does just that. It centers around an idea to build the strongest dueling tree on the market that can easily handle regular rifle use! The Rifle Dueling tree comes standard with paddles designed for .223/5.56 at 100 yards. However, we offer upsized .308 paddles as well. The really neat part about the .223/5.56 paddles is that due to their smaller size, small pistol calibers like the 9mm luger will also successfully rotate the paddles! You heard that right: You can also shoot this tree and have fun with pistol calibers as well! The .308 paddles are upsized bigger than the 5.56 to handle the extra load of the .308 Winchester cartridge, so small pistols will not rotate the 308 paddles reliably, and .223/5.56 standard ammo will also have a hard time rotating the larger paddles. If pistol use is desired, purchase the standard .223/5.56 paddles. Please note that with 9mm we suggest using at least 124gr loads to ensure there is enough energy to fully rotate the paddles. 115gr ammunition MAY not be sufficient depending on the velocity and other factors. **We recommend that if our customers want to shoot .308, that they shoot only the .308 paddles. The 5.56 paddles react violently to a .308, which will reduce life span of the paddles in general**. The deflector shield of the Rifle Dueling Tree is made from 1/4" AR500 steel, and is also angled forward to dispel fragmentation. The gussets are also 1/4" AR500 steel for longevity. The target paddles are made from a seriously strong 3/8” AR550 Steel! We built it specifically to handle heavy rifle use, and it takes the beating like a champ! Consider our Rifle Dueling Tree for your next range steel investment!
Also note that this system MUST be set up on completely leveled ground to remain stable. If ground is not level enough, we recommend purchasing tent stakes or something similar to stake through a few of the base holes for added support.
