Don't want to spend $500 or more on a tree that is too heavy for .22LR, but optimally would get one that could handle both. Suggestions? Thanks!

    The problem is that all 22 rimfire tree plates are made from 1/4" A36 hot rolled steel plate which will not deform when using .22 rimfire but will not withstand centerfire handgun rounds very long. You might be able to special order a tree with AR plates.

    The rimfire dueling tree from Action Targets is made from AR500, according to the product description. I was hoping that it would be light enough to work with .22LR but tough enough to handle some 9mm. Thoughts?

    My thoughts are it is too light.

    Action Target knows what they are about in terms of plates and turners. From their website and FAQ:

    *The Rimfire Dueling Tree is designed for use with .22 rimfire ammunition only. Using ammunition other than .22 rimfire may result in the malfunction of the target’s reactive features or even damage to the target. Please refer to the Steel Target Safety Rules before shooting on any steel target, and learn more about steel hardness and target design by reading The Science Behind Steel Targets.

    FAQs

    Can I shoot my rimfire .17 HMR on this target?: While the .17 HMR is a rimfire round, its velocity is too great for the reactive mechanisms of the target. This target is designed for .22 rimfire ammunition only.

    Can I shoot centerfire handgun rounds on this target?: While this target is made of 1/4" AR500 armor steel which can withstand the force of a centerfire handgun round, shooting it with more powerful rounds will cause it to wear out quickly and cause the reactive features of the target to malfunction.
