BTW the IL crew shot the new steel D's in a steady snow at the end of the IBC Jan 15-17 at 400 yds the snow in the air all but obscured the targets but we still got some hits and had a fine time

Hi Everyone,

I am going to take the last group of targets to the post office tomorrow.  Some of the targets I hoped to ship last week were delayed due to my work schedule not aligning with the shrinking post office hours.

Glad to hear there are a few still to ship - I hope mine are in that group, I was starting to get a little worried they were lost in the mail.  Thanks again, Aromatic.

Thanks for the update Jerry and for participating in the group buy.  All of the West coast targets should have arrived.  Still waiting to hear from the New Englanders.

No sign of them yet.  I'm hoping they will show up by the end of the week.  I got a parcel delivery notice yesterday, signed it and put in back in the box, but it was a pair of no-flat handtruck tires that I had coming from elsewhere.

If they haven't arrived by Monday, Feb 7 I'm sending you one of mine.  PM me with a shipping address.  Appleseeders take care of their own.

No worries, Coop.  I found two excellent D silhouettes bolted together standing against the wall by my front door this evening. ^:)^

They are heavy! :o I guess I'll have to give my rural carrier a couple bucks in the Christmas card this year.  Good thing I didn't order 5 like I had originally thought that I might! ;)

Thanks for all your efforts to make this happen Aromatic! :bow:

Hooah!
Never was a worry, just a potential AIO situation...
They are about 33lbs each, so I concur that a Christmas bonus will be in order...

Howdy All,

Bang'd them gongs at 500 &600 last weekend, .308's & 30-06 just leave a smudge on them.
Don't know if you can make it out on the right of the square steel, the square is railroad tie plate and still dents @ 500yds.

Neat stuff!!!

Your version of "ineffective" does not necessarily reflect the truth....

not sure why, but I hadn't been getting notifications of the replies in here....

Glad everything is working out for everyone! If anyone missed out or if anyone needs some more, let me know. We can either get another buy going or just run them as needed. I do have more of the Stage One AQTs  back on the shelf again for those of you who wanted some of those.

Thanks again everyone for participating :bow:

A bump for Bobcatsteel's new website.

It looks like the D-targets (scaled down) are a regular item and he is now offering mounting solutions for them.   O0

Thanks for the bump!!

I am actually in the process of building another nest of targets this weekend. If anyone needs anything that isn't stocked, or missed out on the D-targets, I am in a perfect position to cut some more up on a short time frame.

Let me know if interested!

Also, still waiting on some pictures of the D-targets in use. Anyone have anything?

I'll have some pix of the D-targets in use after Spring actually arrives in MN, the damn snow stops returning and the ground dries out enough for me to go and post the targets!!!
