Rhinehart 18-1 or Buck Target

Post by Spauldo on Mon Jul 09, 2012 11:25 pm

I am starting to shoot broadheads a lot more and the field point target I have won't last long. I would like to go with Rhinehart for my broadhead target. I only have money for one. Should I go 18-1 or a 3D deer? What do ya think?

18-1 is a real good broadhead target. They will replace it free, if you shoot thru it in less than one year from the purchase date.

Alot of deer targets have replaceable mid sections, plus you can repair them with expanding foam. This will give you much more realistic practice, with different angles that you might experience during a hunt.

I used to have this "VR DEER SERIES" target, and it was a great one. Reasonable price, very durable, easy to repair for a couple years, before replacement is a must.

This is my suggestion, but you do what is best for you.

Also, don't forget about plain, ole sand. It's a great broadhead target.

Thanks for the link to the 3D targets. I built a loft bed for my kiddo this summer already and am not in project mode currently, but I like your sandbox. Just bigger kids with bigger toys:)

Rhinehart durability is hard to beat but the realism of shooting a life sized target has it's own benefits. I have a Rhinoblock by Rhinehart and have been shooting it now for 3 years. The replaceable center is shot up pretty bad but the other 4 sides still have a lot of life left in them. Good thing about it, is that 2 of the sides have a deer silhouette.

Ended up with a Rhinehart Broadhead Buck target. Talked with the folks at R&W and think I will go that way for the next one. The Rhinehart is excellent.

I used the 18 in 1 for over a year while shooting over a hundred rounds a day. My buddy up north shoots only broadheads and the same amount of shots as me. He gets almost a year.

I had the deer and it lasted 2 years with field points and the occasional broadhead. Amazing targets!

The 18-1 is a good target I shoot approx 60 arrows a day twice a day during the summer and mine is holding up fine. I've had mine for over a year I shoot mostly fp's in it.

Dad and I went half on a 18-1. Shooting only broadheads on it just before season, it lasted 3 or 4 years (3 I think ) while also being out in the weather. We liked it so much we replaced it with another. Good product.
