I know that pre-cut steel targets aren't cheap but cutting/drilling that stuff isn't easy (avoid torches as it damages the hardness of the steel). Try Big Dog Steel in OH. His prices include shipping and he has some "economy" targets that might work for your budget. Remember good targets will last a long time so think of it as an "investment "
Alright thanks for the info ill give Big Dog Steel a look.
