What is a binary exploding target?

  • An exploding  target made from two compounds that are completely stable on their own. When they are mixed, they are considered a high explosive by the ATF. They will only explode when shot with a high-powered rifle. Do not transport mixed targets, as they are regulated by the ATF once mixed.

Will exploding 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.

Is there an age requirement to purchase exploding targets?

  • 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.

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

  • No. However, be aware that 50lbs is the legal limit to shoot at one time.

        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 bullet size we recommend is .223. Additionally, a BB gun will NOT work to detonate the targets.

        How far away do I need to shoot the targets?

        • Liberty (1/2lb), and Justice (1lb) can be shot at a distance of 40 yards.
        • Freedom (2lb) can be shot at 60 yards.
        • Star-Spangled Boomer (5lb) can be shot at 100 yards.

        What is the recommended FPS?

        • A 40 grain bullet that goes 2200 feet/second.

        What is the shelf life of the targets?

        • We recommend using the targets within 1 year.

        How do I store the targets?

        • Please store your targets at room temperature, or as close to it as possible, (extreme cold or heat will make the white prills clump together).
