    Refrigerant cylinders, empty of course. Thicker 410A cylinders make a more satisfying sound and hold up a little longer. Depending on the range and cartridge they can catch the rounds as an added bonus.

    I really enjoy shooting steel in the back yard from my deck. Lately my favorite is shooting a nice old 1924 vintage Winchester PreA M52 .22 at a 65 yd steel plate. All the distance that I can get from my deck. Itís got a terrific trigger and nice Lyman sights. But I might be getting a bigger piece of property soon so Iíll be able to extend my steel range a bit.

    Steel bullseye targets and dualing tree.
    And clays for the shotgun.

    Love it.

    Archeological dig here,

    We started using the butts from electric poles for our verticals.

    Doubled 2x6's for the cross pieces. The cross pieces usually last as long as the rubber belting.

    When we used 4x4's for the verticals we were luck to get a year out of them. The Edison poles have been in 8-10 years and they have years of life left. And they're free for the asking.

    Target mounting material is 1/2" thick by 4' wide rubber belting from the local stone quarry, again, free for the asking.

    We also have a section for reactive targets, my favorite is an oxygen cylinder cut in 1/3's. Top and bottom ring like a bell. 470 N.E. with cast can give a good 10 seconds of boooooing.

    Mostly a paper puncher here. I like the good and bad shots recorded for me.

    I will shoot some steel on club ranges that have it, but to be truthful I get bored if ringing them with regularity. If that the case it needs to be further away or a smaller size.
