I would like some input from you members here.... what do you guys think appropriate size targets would be for 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, yards? Im thinking 3 different sized targets for each range, so we can do different skill level matches. all targets will be made from steel.

Thank you

Re: Correct Target Sizes At Diffrent Ranges

I would go with 2, 1, and 1/2 MOA at each distance.

Also I am not sure you need steel at 50 yard increments under 300. To me those are only distances I would shoot with my .22LR. Perhaps you might consider making 50,150 rimfire specific targets. Yet I understand you will get some idiots who shot them regardless so maybe don't do that lol!

Re: Correct Target Sizes At Diffrent Ranges

I use 1 and 2 out to 300. Its always windy where I shoot so sometimes even a 2 moa target is a challenge past 100 yds. I thought about getting a bigger target for the really windy days like 3-4 moa.
