With a commander length 1911 up I shoot at a Do All hot box target
at around 50 yds. My pocket guns It's 20-25 yds. The target is about 8"(?) cube.
Being the target moves around when hit I usually start it around 40-45 yds. and it will travel out from there. The Top Hat
is a good one too but smaller. I want the Ground Ball
. It looks like it would really move around...heh
The targets seem a little pricey but some of them are good for a couple thousand rounds. It's some seal sealing uber cool groovy stuff. Being my range is at home using stuff like this make for great shooting fun. They can take form a 22 to 50 cal round but HP ammo messes with them and they break down faster. What I like best about them is the target moves on each hit so you have to reacquire the target each time making it a little more trying than a paper target.
So yeah, smacking one of those at 50 would be harder than the 24" paper. So I'm pretty comfy saying I"m good at 50 on one of those.
