Whaddya' think for a $35.00 pepper popper?
That's all I got.

    Can't find any dimensions- - - - -even the "specifications" page doesn't say how big it is. Those spring-loaded targets are fun to shoot, but centerfire rifles make 'em look like a Swiss cheese!

    True, this one is rated for .38 -.44.
    That's all I got.

    The video shows them using a .223 and a .30-30- - - -or maybe that AR-style rifle was a .22 RF? I used to have several "chicken" metallic silhouette targets, flame cut from 1/2" plate, and a .30-06 would pierce them at 100 yards. The steel alloy makes a big difference, however.

    Agreed!

    I have a target with dozens of "dents" from .44's & .45's and one hole from a .223.
    That's all I got.

    I like the steel "spinner" targets with the pivot mounted just slightly off-center of the axle. It only takes a little bit of a hit to set them to spinning, and it seems that the pivoting steel absorbs more abuse than something mounted rigid. The slightly heavier bottom section returns the target to the upright position after a few spins.

    I have something 3" X 8" rated for .44 mag~~~~~a .327 did much damage.
    Mine it's really only good for .22.

    Brought it last year, was not used.

    Just ordered one. Seems like a good deal, considering they're $132 at Optics Planet. The one they shot the 30-30 at says soft points only, .270 and '06, etc. at 100yds., .22-250 and .223, etc. at 200yds.

    The red one is for rifle and the yellow for pistol. The rifle is a bit more $$$ so it must be better steel.
