Alot of guys make thier targets about the same size as the vitals on the smallest animal they plan to hunt at that range.
Completely up to you as the shooter. If 24'' is going to challenge you to get better, while building confidence at the same time then make it 24''.
I can consistantly scare the heck out of a 16'' target from 900-1k, but first round hits for me
at that range are not common....yet..... So I keep practicing with the ''aim small, miss small'' technique,(-small being relitave in my case). Each shooter has thier own idea/technique opinions. But remember, Confidence is a powerfull tool, wich, IMO, directly relates to attitude, accuracy, and performance.
