    Usually steel. Paper if it's being scored or I'm working up a load.

    Keep it interesting but make sure to clean up after yourself. 2-liter plastic bottles are fun starting at 500yds, inside of that stick with the 20oz size.

    Before I made some steel targets I used to use balloons. I used to used to use my air compressor at home to blow them up and put them in a large trash bag. They are light weight and this makes them much easier to lug around if you have to walk the targets out on the range and they are easy to clean up after once your are finished shooting.

    Set up clays. Easy to see no clean up.

    The bad thing about clay targets is that they stick around for a LONG time unless you use the newer biodegradable ones. Plus I heard that they are toxic to hogs....
