What is a binary target?

  • A target made from two compounds that are completely stable on their own. When they are mixed, they are regulated by the ATF.

How do I contact you?

  • Email: info@ageofironclad.com
  • Call: 208-917-1260

Are you licensed by the ATF?

  • Yes.

Do I have to be licensed by the ATF to buy exploding targets?

  • No. Please be aware though that the legal limit to shoot at one time is 50 pounds.

Do you have an age requirement?

  • Yes. You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase exploding targets.

Can I mix the targets before I get to my destination?

  • No. That is illegal and you will face charges if you mix the compounds together and transport them. Once mixed, it is considered a high-powered explosive.

      What type of gun do I use to shoot the targets with?

      • Center-fire rifles only. For best results, your gun needs to be able to shoot at least a 40 grain bullet that reaches 2200 feet/second. An example would be an AR-15. Generally speaking, the larger the bullet, the better the results.

      Will a .22 make the targets explode?

      • No. We recommend a bullet that is both 40 grains and reaches 2200 fps. Minimum would be .223 round.

      How far away do I need to shoot the targets?

      • The Little Patriots, Liberty, and Justice can be shot at a distance of 40 yards.
      • Freedom can be shot at 60 yards.
      • Star-Spangled Boomer can be shot at 100 yards.

      What is the recommended FPS?

      • A 40 grain bullet that goes 2200 feet/second
      • To get the best results, both criteria must be met

      What is your return policy?

      • See Legal for our TOS, Return, and Privacy Policies.

      Will your targets spontaneously combust?

      • No. They are binary targets and will not explode spontaneously. The compounds are stable until mixed. Even then, they need to be shot at with a round that reaches at least 2200 feet/second with a 40 grain bullet or larger.
