I never thought about using old discs. Thats a great idea we have dozens laying around at home that can no longer be used. I just need to think of a way to replace them quickly once they are full of holes. I planned on using some old 1/2" log chain we have laying around to suspend them. They will be suspended from the same railroad tie system as the short range targets. Just with one board across the top and the plate hanging in the middle.
Thanks for the Ideas

I have made my own targets on several occasions and am never really happy with them. I also shoot steel alot so I stopped making my own and ordered an A frame target with two Pendulum Adapters here:

They are great people to deal with and you really can not beat the prices considering they will last almost forever. I have put hundredes of rounds on mine even as close as 50 yards (308 and 260)and they show no damage. For the time money and effort you will put into making your own (which will not hold up) you can have something that will last and do exactly what you want with no effort. either way youu go-- good luck and have fun
