For one very minor reason.... the silly patches that are provided around the edge are FAR TOO SMALL to be of use. The targets themselves are absolutely awesome. I've been sticking them to 110lb Card Stock paper for rigidity in my target holder which turns out to be a perfect match. So other than the tiny dots which I find unusable, these are much cheaper and equally as effective as a more common "known" name brand which I've purchased for years. Really pleased to have found these.
BTW, why are the dot patches unusable? Because if you shoot 4 or 5 shots and create one wide hole, the patches are too small to adhere to anything. If you have a "flier", yeah they'll work for a single shot hole but that's it.
I use these as well as the 10” and 6” for training at different distances down range. I like warming up with the 10” at 20 meters then swapping to the 8” at the same distance. The hits are easily seen from that distance and scoring if you do that is simple from the bench. I like that they’re so nice to show your shot placement and cheap to use liberally. I’ll give fellow shooters at the range a short stack anytime I see someone shooting the cheaper paper targets. They’re like 33 cents a piece so an hour at the range with 6 targets runs around 2 bucks per outing. Great stickers.
100% satisfied! A far better deal than BC targets which is what I've been using for years. These might be a tinge thinner but the adhesion is much stronger. Adhesion is important to me since I use an outdoor range and usually shoot early mornings when it's cool out. The range utilizes rubber backstops for your targets and these adhere well to them, even in cool conditions. When finished they pull off of the rubber without leaving paper residue. Five stars from this shooter. Excellent value for a quality splatter target.
I've used a variety of self-adhesive "shoot-n-see" type reactive targets, and these are easily as good as any of those, in every respect.
In a price-per-value comparison the Splatterburst targets are fine! The 8" is a handy size for both pistol and rifle shooters who know what they're doing and have good marksmanship skills.
The little pasty-dots are a nice touch, too. I like that there are several smaller red ones and one larger red center one on each sheet.
It is easy to see where the bullets have hit as the yellow area created is larger than some other brands. It is easy to patch the holes with the black and red patches included on each target thereby reducing the number of targets used per range session. I bought sheets of extra patches but have not needed them yet. Small groups do not require many patches to cover - just kidding;-) Also, the patches can be used on the other brand of targets I already had on on hand. Very good product.
The targets stick to paper very well and the shot placement at 100 and 200 yards can be seen easily with a low magnification scope. When I use these targets I no longer have to use a spotting scope which saves time. I have similar targets that don't stick as well. You can either invest in these excellent targets or a spotting scope that could cost hundreds of dollars, your choice! I highly recommend these targets and wouldn't go to the range without them.
