They sell Shoot-N-See that turns the target a different color when hit.  Kidna pricey though.

The Shoot-N-See is the best I have found, particularly when you get over 200 yards. You can mark all shots with a good pair of bino's beyond 200 you still need a spotting scope or a variable scope that goes 10X or higher. If you eyes are like mine, get someone else to use the scope and mark the shots for you @--0--0123

Where we shoot, the target is on the top of one mountain, we shoot from the top of the other mountain, get in truck drive around, change target, go back and do it again. An ATV would work better for us, a golf cart would never cut it. I will try and find a pic to post. If I can't find it I will give you my web site there are some pic there on our social page..www.thechainman.com

The shoot-n-c  targets are really good to sight in, but if you are going to practice your shooting or just shoot a lot like me, they get to be a little expensive. So go ahead and buy yourself a really good spotting scope, you will be happier in the long run.

We use to use the Shoot N-C until we welded our own flip targets...we have different size paddles and use a spotting scope until we get it dialed in...it's alot of fun and alot less work.

  I use an 8" diameter target. X for a bullseye and as the hits go out of the X ring 10,9 8 etc. 8" works well, if you put this type of target on a deer size target on the vitals area, a hit in the 8" is a "Kill" shot. Very cost effective and easy to ldentify your hits.

for years i used a standard paper target with black circle its worked fine, but last week i used one of the shoot n c targets they are cool you can see the shot at 100 yds, it saves a lot of walkin, it also has dots to cover up holes they cost alittle more but there good
