I have had the pleasure of testing out the Reactive Auto Reset 220 from Grizzly Targets for the past few months. I have to say that I am extremely impressed with this piece of gear and would highly recommend it to anyone. Mine will be a trusty range companion for years.
As the name suggests, the target automatically resets after a hit, negating the need to walk downrange to reset your target.
This thing is heavy duty. It’s so strong that it started to tear through the box it was shipped in. The target is heavy enough to stay put no matter the punishment.
As with any steel target, it’s important to follow safety procedures. This means maintaining a safe distance and wearing shooting glasses. When firing at the Reactive Auto Reset 220 with a.357 Magnum, I did have a piece of a copper jacket come back and lightly scratch me in the neck. Nothing to worry about as it didn’t even draw blood, but an important reminder that shooting steel is not the same as shooting paper. I did have shooting glasses on at the time.
The target not only met, but exceeded all my expectations. After repeated use, there is very little surface pitting.
Honestly, I cannot recommend the Reactive Auto Reset 220 highly enough. Go get one for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
