This is fun with an iron sighted AR, or a pistol caliber carbine. And something that flies to pieces when hit is a lot more entertaining than punching paper.
This is assuming that a local range doesn't get all sideways at the thought, and perhaps police the fragments.
Smaller pieces are biodegradable, but the bigger pieces are another matter.
Hardened clangers are another choice, tho' further away would be better.

I use the SR-1C's for my bullseye type targets for most things. They are the replacement centers for the full size targets.
I adjust my sights to center on a 6 o'clock hold at the desired distance. This gives me maximum contrast around the sights. Even then, for best results I need the weird shooting glasses shown in my avatar to cleanly resolve open sights in all but the brightest light.
I intentionally abused my first one, doing everything they specifically tell you not to do, like hitting it with 12ga slugs or peppering it with bird shot at close range. Wad cutters chew it up pretty good too. It still lasted thousands of rounds and was a little chewed up looking, but still working just fine when I retired it for a new one.
It's a great target for standing, unsupported iron sighted plinking. No set up, reactive, high visibility, cheap, reusable. What's not to love?
the V is a good idea
When serious i set up one of the portable benches with real solid targets...
I like these particular ShootnSee targets with the 3” center. I can aim at 6 o’clock at any range I regularly use and the 3” center is big enough I can use it at 100 yards and less.
