    Hello

    The targets we use at the Williamsport 1000 yard matches are the old 500 yard military targets with some changes.

    Our targets, when on the frames, measure 68 1/2" left and right and 41" up and down.

    We buy them through the "National Target" company in New Jersey.
    I think you could buy at least 100 or more at a time if you wanted to.

    I don't have the number in front of me but I'm sure they have a web site.

    All,
    The company that Darryl is talking about is:

    The National Target Co., Inc.
    PO Box 2152
    Rockville, MD 20852

    Don't have a phone number or any ordering info as to the price and minimum quantity though.

    Steve

    Thanks for the info on that.

    I got the State mixed up.
    We have a Williamsport shooter who brings us a few hundred targets at a time, when he comes to the matches and "he" lives in New Jersey.

    Hey I went and searched for the phone number and this is what I came up with on a yahoo search match.
    National Target Co
    3958d Dartmouth Ct, Frederick, MD 21703
    Phone: (301) 874-4767
    Heres a link

    National Target Company

    I'm going to call them and see what prices they have and if they only carry one target or if they have a catalog.
    Dave.

    Daveosok,
    That is the company. I drilled down in that link you posted and the "IBS 1000 Yard Bench Rest Target" is the one shown in the pictures in the other thread. It does have a blue center and scoring rings that makes it easier to see "doubles". I see they are bascially a $1/target ($48/50 pcs) from the web page.
    One other option is the new 600yd target. It the same IBS 1000yd target reduced 60% for 600yd shooting. The overall paper size and all is smaller but I don't know the official dimensions on it right now. The web page doesn't show it but I beleive they are the company that prints them up for the 600yd clubs for the last year or so. If your intersted in this target I would call them and ask for availability/price.

    Good luck!
    Steve
