Most e economical way I've found is steel fence posts. They're cheap, like $4-5 bucks a piece, & re useable, plus you can put them anywhere you can pound em into the ground. I have chains on my targets, & use bailing wire (tie wire) to adjust the links so the steel hangs evenly.
I've even used a tree branch & mule tape to hang steel from a tree limb. I would NOT recomends this method. When the bullets impact the steel they basically blow up. (even my Accubonds). You can guess where the fragments ended up when you go to untie the mule tape, & your hands look like you swatted a porcupine.
Chains are about the only good way I've found.
