Cold as Ice: Reactive Ice Targets

Target shooting is one of my all-time favourite past times. I find it almost therapeutic, more so when everything is coming together, and ragged holes are forming consistently!


However, while shooting groups is fun, targets that provide some feedback when you hit them adds excitement. Let’s face it, if it blows up, it’s awesome!


I would hazard a guess that most of us will have shot just about everything you could think of. I’ve lined up balloons and paint tins filled with water, coke bottles, concrete, wood, wet phone books, ballistic gel, etc.


Recently I got an email from Alister George who owns and operates Zeroed in Engineering. Alister has engineered some pretty cool (excuse the pun!) target molds that use water and the simple process of freezing to create reactive ice targets.


Alister provided me with three molds to try out on the range, and the best way to see how they work is with a video, see below!
