I have seen and used several moving targets and the best one was a cable/wire that was spaced apart between two dryer pulleys and driven by a 12 volt DC motor and battery.
The target was suspended from the cable and printed on both sides. It ran continuous and at any speed you wanted.
I also saw one that had 3 pulleys, that gave you a quartering too and away shot plus a side shot.
The simplest one was set up like a zip line and after being pulled up the cable was released by a pull rope from the shooting station. (Very simple but having help was always the best idea).
Hope this helps.
