Caldwell Resetting Handgun Target
performed better than expected
this was a great buy. purchased this to do some target shooting in a friends backyard. the package says to use only lead ammo, we did not see this till after a day of shooting. afterwards it was still in VERY good condition with minor dents from FMJ ammo (even with a .45 ACP) good practice to hit the non moving target and then try to hit it again while it swings. made of heavy metal and still works great.

I go shooting with my dad all the time, and we tried it out with a .308, .45 and several other big calibers. It stood up so well, we decided to try a .30-30 deer rifle. Mistake on our part, it made a huge dent, but surprisingly, did not go through! we just took a hammer to the back, good as new!
i would recommend for you to keep a can of orange spray paint on hand, as the stickers are destroyed soon :)

Resetting?? Uh please explain
Can someone please explain to me how it resets? I have mounted this thing in 5 different ways, and I have yet to get the lower targets to move out of the way. They all just spin. The target also tends to fall down or move. No instructions with it that explains how it resets or tips. I read that you are not supposed to use copper jacketed rounds, but nothing in the package that says that. Seems durable, I only shoot copper jacketed round and it has been holding up OK. Otherwise, this is not a very well thought out product.

I have used this target with my 40 S&W FMJ & Hollow Points, 38 SPEC, , 22LR, .22 WIN MAG, .223, and .17HMR and it performs exceptionally well. Easy setup (1-2 min) durable and fun.
