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.
