Re: what to shoot at ?(targets)

The place that's closest and easiest for me to go to is only about 150y. I like to shoot pistol brass @100y. Beyond that, I shoot the aluminum Budweiser bottles. They're red and made of heavy aluminum, so they aren't obliterated like a can is.... even with varmint bullets. I'm going to try for one at 1000y this summer and will let you know how that works out for me. I'm also going to try 300y egg shooting with my varmint rifle this summer.

All it takes is One Good Shot!

We just starded shooting Bowling pins we bought 12 for 12 dollars and they seem to last forever and they don't break about so clean up is pretty easy. The biggest gun we have shot at one is .30-06 not to big but still holds up.

Hope this helps

I like shooting bowling pins also I have shot them with a 416 rem mag and they still hold together. I have some that I bought 4 yrs ago they are getting a little on the thin side but still work.

Golf balls, eggs, pumpkins, rotten fruit (and veggies) and water-filled milk jugs...

And, of course, clean-up behind yourself...and others :(

I like the full size deer paper targets (get them at walmart), they let you try a fake deer before you take a pop at a real one (or in the off season...). I killed a few on the weekend at 800 yards...

I also like detergent bottles (tide). They are brite colors and really stand out, just make sure it's actually empty before you fill it with water...or you might not want to come home...

Good Lord--someone has found a substance that is toxic to hogs? If you lived in South Texas, you could make a billion dollars.
