Default Resetting Targets

So I have my Spikes .22lr Build, two .22lr rifles (10/22 & Savage), and lastly my Walther P22 pistol.

I currently have this resetting target and I am happy with it.
LINK HERE


The problem with this target is that it sits so low and without a hill it sucks. So I am looking into getting something taller that I can use for both pistol and rifle. Paper just gets old and boring after a while.

My current options:

Caldwell .22lr Resetting Target GREAT PRICE


High Point Dueling Post (High Price)



If you guys have any other recommendations please let me know! Also if anyone could refer me to a highly visible paint from Walmart to re-mark these targets.

Thanks in advance!

What if you make a stand with vertical 2 by 4 legs a couple of feet high. Drill a couple of holes in the end of the 2 by 4s then stick the legs of your swinger in the holes. Mark

That isnt a bad idea. Sounds like it may work, but i dont know how sturdy they would be.

the top one stands maybe 12" high once in the dirt and is about 16" in width.

You could build a PVC stand like this one: http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/edu24.htm

You could construct it in such a manner that it would hold your current repeating target and could also be used for paper targets. In other words, you could use smaller diameter PVC more suitable to the size of your target stakes if you never shoot paper, or build a full size one and drill holes in the wood uprights to hold your repeating target. I built one of these myself and, of course, didn't use any PVC cement so it breaks down easily to fit in a small box. Works like a charm.

is it meant to plant into the ground? Once planted how many inches above the ground would you say the targets are?

Thanks for the reply. It may not be high for what it is, but it is still high when compared to the others. I think I may grab it though cus it looks like a world of .22 fun!

I built this one for about $20. Works great. Don't have to mess with resetting.

It just sits on the ground, and if I remember correctly its probably 5 inches from the ground or higher, I have it folded up and put away right now. Its nice because it folds up flat and probably 20x20 inches square. I suppose you could extend the legs and make it higher with pipe sections. I also sell this online too.

I also lowered alot of the shooting steel target prices so check them out, theres even one for up to .44 cal.

Have you personally used this shooting target? Will this be good for both longer distance rifle shooting and shorter distance (10yard) pistol shooting? (.22lr of course). Do you sell the smaller Caldwell one as well?

I only own the smaller caldwell type and I do sell it, just got it last week and will shoot it tomorrow hopefully. The only steel targets I have shot at are the ones I make myself. Im sure any of them can be shot from any distance, its just being able to see them. I personally wouldnt shoot closer then 25 yards just because im concerned with ricochets coming towards me, but im no expert on them either.

Got a chance yesterday to shoot my little targets

At 25 yards it really takes some skill to hit these, I think closer is better at least with a red dot standing, If I had a scope on a bipod then it may work farther out. Sometimes one target going up would release another one and make it swing down but mostly it worked fine. It was very windy while shooting but it did work ok. They do sit about 6 inches of the ground.

We use that one in our 22 matches at 75 & 85 yards. Ours is beat to hell and back (range throw away that I salvaged) but its a great little target.

I had a hard enough time seeing it at 25 yards, how can you even see it at 75.

I've got the Caldwell. If you want to raise it up higher, just get a couple pieces of galvanized pipe. The two legs should easily fit inside. Push the pipe into the ground, or if you want to get fancy, make some bases or use threaded pipe and some "t"s to angle the legs back a bit. Shouldn't cost more than about $10.

Our 22s are scoped - I have a 4-16x40 that stays at 10X most of the time as thats the magnification its mils at.

I ended up going with "Action Target" rimfire tree. LINK HERE

These are by far the best built targets I could find. I did some research on arfcom and these guys are well known for building a quality product with a lifetime warranty.
