    MGM and Action Target are both good.

    I think http://www.shopactiontarget.com is about as good as you're going to find. Not cheap, but good stuff.

    I have their 550 evil roy and I like it, though do be careful shooting it with rifles rds > 3000fps from less than 100 yards.

    Walk along a railroad track and pick up old plates. Some of them are quite thick. Get 3 steel fenceposts (2 side & a top bar) and some chain. you are good to go. Now these are for longer range shooting since they dimple from every rifle shot but hard to beat the price. Especially if you happen to walk along a railroad every day.

    +1 on Action Target.

    I have their Rimfire dueling tree & the heavy-duty Evil Roy practice targets. They are built super solid and will last forever. Our local club shoots on many of their steel targets for 3 gun matches. They are ancient and still have very minor surface damage/wear.

    +1 on Action Target. I've got one of their portable steel targets. Very nice quality.

    I've had good firsthand experience with both MGM and Las Vegas Steel targets.

    You have a superb target maker in your backyard. Mabry Industries, out behind Gibsonville, cuts and sells steel targets to cowboy clubs, IPSC and IDPA.

    I can speak to their quality. Plasma cut as ordered. Clean edges.
