So I finally got approval on some family land we have to use as a personal gun range, and need to get some steel targets for it now. What is the most affordable place to buy some? Any places offer a hide discount possibly? Obviously want to help those that help us if possible. Thanks in advance.

JC steel is the hide sponsor

This is where Ive been buying mine from, its the cheapest Ive found and honestly thats the only criteria I care about and they also have a presence on amazon but some stuff is cheaper on their website. https://bullseyemetals-com.myshopify.com/

Though in looking a bit now for a full size ispc midway is matching the price and has a free shipping coupon as well so its the same price. Shop around and see where the best price is after shipping. Shipping these can be pricey.

If you are a cheap guy like me, find the nearest scrap yard. They will normally let you trade a case of beer for some scrap AR steel. Any type of cutting blade or even quarry chute lining will be Abrasion Resistant (AR). If any of you are up in Washington State, PM me and I can give you contact info for a good place to pick up some steel.

I can say that the JC Steel slotted hook bracket is slick as slick. Easy to use, easy to set up.

I cut my T-posts in about half, I usually don't need them super long anyway, makes them a lot easier to pack on the 4 wheeler. I cut the tip to a point, and pound them in with a small hand sledge.

The best part of this system is just how damn loud and clear they ring when struck!! It's pretty awesome.

You beat me to it. It's an easy-to-use, durable hanging system and it rings like a bell. Add to that Jake's great attitude and excellent customer service = win/win.
