The Star Targets Exploding Rifle Target is very safe when used as intended and the directions are followed. Once mixed it must be impacted with a high velocity round to set it off, it will not go off if it is dropped, shaken, kicked, even lit on fire. (It is not recommended that you test this). It takes about a 40 grain bullet traveling at 2200 fps directly impacting it to cause it to go off, anything below these requirements will not set it off.
Each Star Targets Exploding Rifle Target contains two components, a base and a catalyst which is pre-measured for each target and heat sealed and packaged with the target. To prep the target for use (first read and ensure you understand all directions and safety instructions), simply open the target, open the "catalyst pack" and dump the entire contents into the target container. Seal the container back up, mix vigorously for 45 to 60 seconds (the entire contents should be a light grey color with no white spots left). Place the target at a safe distance (recommended distance located on label) and location then you are ready to shoot.
