I thought I'd try a steel target for something different.
One of our guys cut these out for me, not sure why it has 3 holes.

It takes the hits

And seems to scatter the fragments

I just tried it with a .22 and 9mm pistols
Tomorrow I'll take it out to 100 yards and try it with a rifle :mrgreen:

I always hang them off chains in between two posts with the chains bolted onto the back. That way it leans a bit and sends the bullet fragments downward for the most part.

If you get some of the bright orange marking paint that's used upside down for marking the ground, it works pretty well to help see it plus it kinda pops off so you can see where you hit. I ran across that when I had to weld up the mild-steel swinging target that I had for .22 that was powdercoated, then someone decided to plink it with their AR and of course that blew right through it. Welded up the holes and of course was out of the bright orange powder to redo it, then saw the marking paint that the previous owners had left behind for marking tree stumps. Worked pretty well...of course then the same guy decided to shoot it with his 8mm Mauser when I was gone...but at least he only did it once before someone told him hey, the orange targets are .22 only, read the sign!

I was going to hang it, but then I saw a stand like the one I made.
It has a long bolt holding it, and a spring providing tension. It has enough movement and just a bit of a forward lean and seems to deflect downward pretty well.
When I make one for rifle, I'll have it at a steeper angle.
