    Any of you guys have suggestions on reactive targets ie; dueling trees etc...I'm going to set up my own little private range on my property. Is there one company or target better than the other?

    Action Target and Poratarget make great targets. I have a Action Target plate rack and dueling tree. Good quality. The poratarget stuff I seen was very good also.

    I was not happy with my MGM static target. I will not be purchasing another from him.

    Why did you not like the MGM target? I am considering one.

    I really like Birchwood 22lr Silhouette targets set. If you have enough space on your range, I would get one of that.

    I bought a portable plate rack from Spinning Metal Targets. It's wonderful. Steel plates are fun, but can get boring. Dueling trees are fun, but can get tedious to reset. I love my plate rack -- just pull a rope to reset all the targets. He sells many other reactive targets, too -- including dueling trees and gongs and poppers and everything else. Of course you can get the plate rack without a trailer, too.

    The rifle target I purchased I was told good for 5.56 from 15 yards and out. We have chips and others from the first day of use. The stand is not very strong and I have to use sand bags to told everything together.

    I cant think of any chunk of steel that will hold up to an AR-15/223 at 15 yards.

    Softer than AR400, you punch holes in it. Harder than AR500, and it fractures.

    Maybe MGM meant 50 yards... Even then you are still going to do some damage.

    I have several of the auto poppers and dont shoot them closer than 100 yards with a rifle. With a pistol I beat them up as close as 5-7 yards.

    This will be all pistol work and occasional shotgun. Birdshot for a load when practicing.
