What do you brethern & sisters use for targets to get that give that "oh so good feeling" when they're hit? Something that won't start the hills on fire or spawn three-head kids if left behind.
Something you put WAY out there and the person who hits it first doesn't have to buy? Something that doesn't require a spotting scoping to confirm the hit?

I'm thinking of trying gallon milk jugs filled with drywall dust. I realize the caliber of the bullet doing the hitting is going to make a huge difference, but I'm looking for ideas.

I'm a big fan of 2 liter bottles filled with colored water. People around work drink so much soda it's rediculus, so I skeeve the bottles to shoot up.

And I'm also a big fan of the aged pumpkins I get after the holiday season they give me at the local farm stand

We shoot 1 gallon milk jugs filled with some water. They are better than the 2 liter soda bottles as they have built in carry handles.

Large cans of yams. They are awesome when hit with pretty much any rifle, but I love what a 7.62x54r does to them.

Cans of diet soda. (diet because when you clean up it's not all sticky with sugar)

Large rocks or watermelons are good also.

Of course I shoot the .50 so YMMV.




Slow the last one down and see the big flame!!!!
