Exploding Targets

Are there any target shooting ranges in your area that offer exploding targets? It seems to be the rage and is catching on in a lot of places. In some states, Idaho is one, they have distance competitions with some pretty impressive blow-up targets.

700 yard hit on a brick of nitro and you know it!

We just use milk jugs or similar with coolaid or jello in them. They explode when hit also.
do you mean BoomerShoot, Kent?

you can buy a kit to make your own exploding targets
Maybe! This article I was reading told of a guy in Idaho who was licensed by the federal goobermint to build bombs - essentially.

So he builds them suckers out of TNT or whatever. He's a regular pyrotech geek. I saw a video on it once. If I can find it I'll post a link
I shoot home made steel swinging targets a lot with my rim fires. I like to keep a paint can handy to hit it with once in a while makes it just like a new target.

If one of those cans sits a little too long then it won't spray and those are kind of interesting to shoot. Hit it near the bottom and the remaining paint spins it in circles like a fireworks whizz bang and it's pretty impressive.
