Does anyone here have any experinces with these cubes. Will You get movment of the cube with a 5.56 round?.

I have one I bought from one of the vendors here on the forum. It has about 1000 rounds of .223, 500 rds of .45, 100 rounds of .44 mag. It is holding together very well, and with the .223 on dry ground it moves pretty well. It will roll and bounce around with .223

If it is slightly muddy it will get bogged down but still is fun. Some of the less hot .45's get caught in it so mine has actually gained about 5lbs. he
By the way, .44 mag will rock its world. The first time I shot it with .44 mag it rolled 20 feet perfectly straight.

Hope that helps.

$75 for a 4" cube!!! Is it made of gold!

You may not think it is worth the money, but for a reactive target that last for years. $75 to me is worth it. I was spending $75 in shoot-n-c targets every few months and they aren't fun compared to the cube. At the range, everyone stops to watch me unload 3 or 4 clips into the "cube"

Do these things float? I have a shooting spot that has water and burms around that water. If it would jump around in the water, it could be a lot of fun!

I would suggest not shooting into the water.

From the looks of it will last well into the thousands of rounds. I have even looked into the polymer spinning targets on ebay, supposedly made of the same material. I think those would be neat.

Hope that helps.

I do the same thing with gold balls and my .22 lr its fun. I go fishing in creeks near a gold course and find them all over. Its like finding a free target. With much more than a .22 lr you may not be able to find it once hit. The golf balls will take several hits from 7.62x51 befor you need to shoot at a new one.
You can also put a serew in them and hang them from a tree/fence and they swing, makes it fun.

Can you elaborate? I've heard that ricochets are an issue. But he says he has an adequate berm; is there some other issue? Is lead contamination an issue?

I wouldn't worry about lead contamination unless you shoot there on a regular basis -and eat the crawfish.
