The A-DAP target system was designed to be a potent and capable target system. Our focus was on extreme durability and portability in a package that offers more value than anything else on the market. Our opinion of course. But after thousands of customers are rocking our A-DAP system, the word has spread: TA Targets manufactures an elite level of steel target systems built for serious use.

This 50BMG Target Plate Is For Our A-DAP System.

Our 1/2″ 50BMG Target Plate is a twist on a standard D Zone Target shape and size. It is designed to function with either our A-DAP Top Bracket or our A-DAP Armored Posts (Goliath Variant for 50BMG). The back side of the Goliath target plate features our CNC formed adjustable angles. The adjustable angles allow multiple angles of forward lean. On the most aggressive setting, users can position the target to an astounding 30+ degrees of forward lean.

Forward Lean Dispels Fragmentation And Absorbs Bullet Energy.

Bullets fragment upon impact of our AR550 steel target plate. Having a forward lean AND movement does a few things for the system. First, it helps to absorb the impact of the incoming rounds. This is simply physics. Because forward lean and movement absorbs energy better, the system experiences a much longer life over fixed plates. Once the bullet impacts and fragments, the movement and lean deflect the fragmentation directly towards the ground. Because of the meticulously designed position of the plate over the base, fragmentation entirely misses the targets base.

AR550 Steel Is The MINIMUM For Our Products.

Our select grade of AR550 steel is the highest quality we have found on planet earth. Tested and produced to exacting specifications means more reliability, better consistency. Performance is so good, in fact, that the 1/2″ Goliath Target Plate features a LIFETIME warranty. Buy once, cry NEVER. Spend more time focused on training, less time worrying about your target systems.

The Loudest Ringing Target In Our Lineup Is The C Zone Plate.

Successful impacts can be heard from this plate at extreme distances. We typically recommend the Goliath for medium to ultra long range distances. We especially recommend this system for folks who are looking for 50BMG rated systems. No other target plate offers the incredible value of our Goliath target plate.

1.) Why do you emphasize AR550 steel so much? Answer: AR500 steel is fine for low volume, long range shooting. It simply is not durable enough for our customer base. Our customers train with fighting weapons at engagement distances. These distances often are as close as 30 yards with rifles. The ONLY solution for this training style is our A-DAP system and 1/2″ AR550 Steel.

2.) What makes this steel so great? Answer: For one, it has an EXTREMELY tight tolerance spec. In other words, lot to lot, each plate is nearly identical in hardness. This is crucial for consistency in performance. We track each heat and lot number and ensure that our customers are getting the most robust systems in the world. We trust the system and steel so much that we placed a lifetime warranty on our 1/2″ target plates.

3.) What does the warranty cover? Answer: Under normal use with our recommended ammo types and distances, these targets are lifetime targets. If users follow all our recommendations and there is a failure, we simply replace the plate. We have a full disclosure of our warranty process at the bottom of our home page. It is rare that we replace products under warranty simply because failures are far and few between. That being said, you can rest assured that if there is a premature failure, we will get you squared away with a new plate fast.

4.) Who should buy the Goliath Target Plate? Answer: Anyone who needs the biggest, strongest target in our lineup should consider the Goliath Target plate and/or system. This is the only plate in our lineup that has bee PURPOSE built to take on 50BMG. When used with our mounts and 26″ base (or breakdown base with 30″ extension) this target can be impacted by 50BMG as close as 100 yards.

5.) Can I use this target plate with other bases or mounts? Answer: Technically you “can” do whatever you want. Although we HIGHLY recommend against it. Look, this isn’t a sales pitch: we designed our systems to work well together. From the positioning of the plates, to the lean angle, to the stability of our bases: It was all designed to work as a system. For that reason, we ONLY recommend using our target plates with our top brackets, posts, and bases.

6.) How close can I shoot at this target plate? Answer: Pistols at 10 yards. Rifles up to 7.62X39 (ammo 3000 FPS muzzle OR less) 30 yards. Magnum calibers 100 yards+. Ammo must be copper jacket, lead core. Frangible is acceptable as well. Under no circumstances use steel core, penetrator, or armor defeating ammunition. 50BMG ball ammunition is acceptable when used with our larger bases. Note: You MAY need to stake this target down when shooting 50BMG if your range is not flat.

7.) Does This Product Fall Under Prop. 65 Warnings? Answer: Maybe. Just in case, be sure not to eat the paint or lick the target before or after you’ve shot it. If you are just curious, led tastes horrible and will probably cause mental damage. If you have done it once you are likely to do it again. Handle at your own risk, if you choose, you may wear an industry grade hazmat suit and gas mask with a HEPA filter and good luck charm on your wrist.
