ShootSteel Magnum Spring Popper
If you love the sound of bullets smacking steel, you’ll love the heavy-duty targets from ShootSteel. The Magnum Spring Popper is made with ½-inch AR500 steel and can withstand repeated shots from a .338 Lapua at 200 yards and shots from smaller calibers at closer ranges. The base is made from 3/8-inch steel and includes a stainless steel spring to keep the target upright after each shot. It weighs 36 pounds. ($199; ShootSteel.com)
