    I have a couple extra steel targets. These things are GREAT for pistols (from 20-100 yds), and from 100+, you can use them for smaller rifles. I use one at 600 yds, when I'm shooting my .308, and it's a great way to get positive feedback from each hit.

    These are HEAVY, and pretty thick metal. I used a yard stick, to show the dimensions.

    These are GREAT for practicing IDPA or IPSC. You can fit the "A" and "C" zones on these plates, and practice at an outdoor rock pit. I painted one, and included pictures of an Official IPSC cardboard target, so you could compare the size of these plates. If you're reloading your own ammo with coated/plated or lead bullets, these would be OK for closer range. Lead just makes a splatter mark, and the coated bullets hardly even leave a mark. It's fun to set up your own stages, and run through them with friends. These would be perfect for cowboy action shooting!

    If you are using these for precision distance shooting, you might just want to paint them a solid color. I use "marking" paint (high visibility "safety" colors), and place them at 600-1000 yards. You can hear the impact, so if you're too far away to see it, you'll be able to hear it.
