Default Steel targets?

I am fairly new to shooting recently I've watched several youtube videos of fellow gun enthusiasts, shooting at steel targets. I have tried to did them online with no luck. Anyone have any advise on where I can find some hanging/standing steel targets? Thanks !

Sportsman's guide has a few. The small ones are cheap. The big ones are really expensive.
Most sporting goods stores have the little ones, too.

Unless you use AR500 steel plate,your just wasting your money.
A round from a 22WMR will almost go completely through standard 5/16" plate steel. A larger round will punch right through 3/8" - 1/2" standard plate easily.

You need to use a heat treated plated steel for targets if you want them to last.

Try a google for "steel targets". Lots of companies make them.

Where are you located? Probably someone close is doing them. If you can
pick them up it will save a pile on freight.

MGM Targets in Idaho makes several types. What are you going to shoot
them with?

eta: Watched the video. What those are is steel challenge style plates. Get AR500. A 12" plate
with stand will be over $100 plus freight.
