I was out at the range the other day & there were they 2 guys shooting at a black piece of cardboard with red pasters. they had set up at 200 & 400 yds. I asked them how they could see the holes in the black cardboard. They had made their own shoot & see target by painting the cardboard 1st silver then black. The silver paint showed up on the edge of the bullet holes just fine

That's pretty clever. I wonder if these targets were made for less than commercial shoot and see targets cost?

I've read about people making thier own by spray painting wax paper with flat black spray paint and putting a red target dot on it. They say the black paint flakes off the wax paper when hit with a bullet leaving a nice white outline around the bullet strike.

I haven't tried it myself though.

I have an advantage as I have a metal shop. Galv. scrap makes a great target.Check your local sheet metal shop for scrap.Some will give it to you,some won't.If you want to spend money then spray paint it white or red...or use duct tape.

These are some great ideas.

Norman (or anyone else who knows), could I have some more info on the galvanized idea. What do the holes look like downrange? Does everything go through it?

I took pink poster board and covered it with strips of packing tape. Then you spray it with black paint. Works great. Nice thing is all you have to do is re-spray it and you can keep using it over and over again until it disintegrates.

Buy a roll of white freezer paper. Paint the slick side with black ACRYLIC paint. The acrylic will slake off when hit by the bullet exposing the white paper underneath.

I think that the old time enameled steel refrigerators were the original shoot-n-see targets.. A 22LR hit looked like it was shot with a 12 ga slug!

A large piece of plastic cut from a bag works well; just paint it black (if white) and shoot.

In AZ I just paint a rock black with a small aiming circle; if I haven't shot at the rock before I can just pick a spot and let it rip.

Its hard to measure splatter holes accurately, I like a white target and a clean cut..Plus I get a better picture with my spotting scope as a rule.
