Day-Glo (Hi-Viz) Target Dots Starting at Five Bucks per Thousand

Sometimes simpler is better when it comes to targets for fun shooting and load testing. While we normally use test targets from our Downloadable Target Page, it’s sometimes easier to just use high-visibility adhesive target dots.

Hi-Viz Stick-On Dots in Assorted Colors and Diameters
You can order 1″ target dots in bulk from Data-Labels.com. Many colors are available including fluorescent (hi-viz) Red, Green, Orange, and Yellow. These are bright and easy to see even in fading afternoon light. A pack of twenty (20) sheets (1260 dots total) costs just $5.97 (that works out to $4.74 per thousand). For the 1″-diameter stick-on dots you get 63 dots per sheet. Larger, 1 2/3″-diameter fluorescent dots are also available from Data-Labels.com in 20-sheet packs for $5.97, with 24 large dots per sheet (480 dots total). If you want larger, 2″-diameter dots, sheets with 400 Hi-Viz dots are currently on sale for $5.97 per 20-pack.

If you prefer smaller, 3/4″-diameter circles, Staples.com sells packs with 1008 adhesive dots for $3.64 to $8.39 per pack. Colors include Neon Red (item 538041), Neon Orange (item 538116), Neon Yellow (item 538090), and Neon Green (item 538066), as well as dark blue, light blue, yellow, and dark green. We recommend the Neon Red for most uses, or the Neon Yellow for use on a black background. For $4.41 Staples sells a “Rainbow Pack” (item 297705) with four assorted colors: red, light blue, green, and yellow.

Half-Inch Fluorescent Dots for 100-200 Yards
For close-range work, you may prefer 1/2″-diameter dots. Forum member Steve has found these at Uline.com. The 1/2″ dots are available in a wide variety of colors including fluorescent Red, Pink, Yellow, and Green. Price is $12 for a roll of 1000 dots (item S-2063).

Big Price Drop on 5.5" Orange Peel Targets

MidwayUSA has a sweet deal on Caldwell self-adhesive “orange peel” targets. Regularly priced at $16.99, this 50-sheet target pack is now just $6.99. That’s 61% off, a huge savings. NOTE: These are factory seconds so there may be small blemishes.

Caldwell orange peel

We’ve used these targets with both iron sights and scoped rifles and they work great. The 5.5″ bull is easy to see at 600 yards with a scope, and the contrasting yellow hit circles are highly visible at long range. For iron sights shooters, the 5.5″ black circle is a good size for 100-yard practice. (Note that the NRA official MR-31 100-yard High Power target has a 5.75″ bull.) And, when shooting offhand at 50 yards using a rimfire lever rifle with buckhorn sights, this target was just about ideal — not too big, not too small.
