Do-All Outdoors® Impact Seal Self-Healing Target - Big Gong Show
Not a good high power rifle target
I recently had an opportunity to shoot long range with my .308 Win rifle. We set this target at 500 yards and fired at it several times, much to our dismay it never moved. Feeling a bit ashamed due to our inability to hit a 9 inch circle we decided to call it an early day. After picking the target up, we realized that we had actually been hitting it after all.
The bullet holes had actually sealed themselves as advertised but the target never spun as we expected it to do with a direct hit. Due to the lack of a pistol range where we were, we did not test it at closer range to see if maybe it works as advertised as a pistol target.
Overall quality of the target was good, it is built very solid and should hold up for a while, it just didn't work out for us as a rifle target.

Gong? can't tell you hit it
I bought this target for longer range shooting as I thought it would help know when you hit the target. 200 yard shots with the 308 and it did not move. Holes heal so well you cant see them with the scope either. If you want to shoot something that will let you know from a distance that you hit it, this ain't it.

Gong Self healing target
The gong does "reseal" upon impact. However, it does not spin when hit (whether the enclosed counterbalance weight is installed or not)...It may move a little. ...Therefore, it is very difficult to impossible to tell if you hit the target.

Do not waste your money!
This target is a huge waste of money. I shot it at several distances with 5.56, .45 ACP, .40 S&W and 9mm. the target does reseal, but it doesn't swing at all. With the hand gun rounds, it wobbled just a bit and with the 5.56. the only movement was when I obliterated the target stand. I ended up throwing it in the trash at the end of the range day. I was hoping this would be a cheap alternative to getting some steel targets. Guess that's what I get for trying to be cheap!
