The 10 Best Steel Targets

We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Shooting paper targets can be fun, but it quickly gets expensive — and replacing them every few rounds is a real drag. If you want something that will last, these steel models can stand up to a ton of abuse, and the noise they make when hit lets you know how accurate you are without needing to move. Just be sure to use the proper caliber for your model, and stay the recommended distance away. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

October 24, 2018: Included the Caldwell Rimfire Resetting for its utility as a pistol target, but penalized it due to the low quality of the included stickers, as well as issues with the frame moving around when the targets were struck. Gave the High Caliber Animal Silhouette high marks for being fun to shoot, even though their odd shapes might be challenging for novices.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
