Re: What color targets?
We have also tried both, and for white shows up a whole lot better. we paint a 3" orange circle in the middle.
we cut out the center of a paper plate, using a cup, draw a cirlce around it and cut it out. then throw the plate in our paint bag.
a plate usually lasts atleas a few trips and because it bends it makes painting the circle less messy.
either will work, but at the really long ranges, we could not see the hits on the orange.
now, with the plate white first, then the orange cirlcle in the middle, we can see the hits in the orange? so maybe if you wanted orange, paint it white first?
we shot a mile a month or so ago, and had two plates up, one white, the other orange. We could see the hits with our spotting scope on the white. We thought we were missing the orange until we drove up to the target. it was straight orange with nothing underneath.
