The Best Targets for Long Range Shooting
Long-range shooting typically means hitting a target 600 yards away or more. However, suppose you are new to target practice or learning to shoot with a precision rifle. In that case, your definition of long-range shooting could mean anywhere between 100-200 yards away.
Most enclosed shooting ranges can only accommodate distances of 200 yards or less. So you might need to practice in a new setting (like an outdoor range) to start shooting long-range. Additionally, you will need to learn about:
- Using different types of caliber designed for precision shooting
- Finding suitable ammunition for your rifle
- Practicing long-range shooting techniques (outdoors = wind resistance!)
- Equipping your rifle with different tools (e.g., optic with magnification, ballistic calculator, bipod and rear bag, etc.).
Shooting long-range can be very different depending on the target’s distance. And it also means other things to different shooters. Unless you’re trying to win a competition or training for a specific purpose, the space in yards is not always the same for everyone.
3 Targets for Long-Range ShootingLongLong
There are three shooting targets to help you practice precision shooting. They come in different sizes and thicknesses to accommodate the rifle you’re using and the distance between you and the target.
The C-31 Gong Frame and Steel Target is easy to transport and assemble. You don’t need any tools to do it. The legs can be positioned on uneven ground, and the shaft is high enough so that you can shoot at larger targets.
- Overall size: 60 w x 28 deep x 30 h
- The AR500 Steel Target is Rated for 3000 FPS(Feet Per Second) at Impact.
C-10 Auto Reset Mini Pepper Popper
This steel shooting target is mounted on an auto-reset base that makes the target lean back when shot (about 30 degrees). Then it will spring back to its vertical position so you can keep shooting without going down to the range to reset it. This long-range shooting target also includes two 17″ long adjustable legs for side stability. It can be easily adjusted, as needed, for ground conditions.
Steel Plate Rack
The Center Fire Plate Rack is an excellent choice to increase your accuracy. It features six 8″ diameter AR500 Steel Targets, 3/8″ thick and mounted to a standard frame. The targets are easily reset by pulling a rope from the firing line. The legs adjust and break down, making it easier to transport and carry.
