Due to supply disruptions relating to Covid-19, many products are experiencing large price increases. AR500 steel is among these. Our cost for premium American made AR500 Steel has nearly doubled in 2021. We did not expect this price increase, and we have had to pass some of it on to our customers.
We could use cheaper, lower quality AR500 steel, but our commitment is always to provide you with premium quality AR500 steel targets. This means starting with the best quality raw materials. You can rest assured that any AR500 steel target purchased from Superior Ideas is made in the USA from premium American made AR500 steel. We require the BRN number to be 500 or above on all of our AR500 steel. The BRN number refers to the hardness of the steel. AR500 steel has BRN numbers that range from approximately 470-525, so the steel we purchase is always in the upper range.
We appreciate all of our customers and look forward to providing you with the quality AR500 targets you deserve for years to come. Thank you for your patronage!
