I bought a Rinehart target rated at 450f.p.s. from my local RuralKing for $50 and it stops my K.I. speed 425 with ease. I have shot as close as 10 yards without any problem at all and bolts can easily be removed.

Do you have the dimensions of this target and/or a materials list/construction plan? I want sure what OCT stands for. Looks like a great option, and I'd like build something similar at some point.

Here's a link to a thread I wrote when I first made it back in 2015. With dimensions and the materials I used I guess you didn't read the the first page of this thread. In post number 6, I explain OCT :D It stands for "Old Clothes Technology":D https://www.crossbownation.com/community/threads/made-a-new-target-today.36180/

Here's some pics of another target I made basically the same way. You could also use a 2x12. Third Hand Archery also makes target facing that is supposed to be good. I just lucked into the fiberglass roving that has worked great. Even this old lawn chair material has held up pretty well.

I believe it is the Storm II. These are the first two shots ever out of my Aculeus at 9 yds just to make sure I wasn't going to miss the target at 20 yds. This is about the penetration of every arrow I have shot at the target other than the two that passed through. I am not sure how many shots I have taken at the target. Less than 100 for sure. I would say somewhere between 50 and 75 but that is a guestimate.

I was shooting 5 arrows at 5 different spots, retrieving them, putting 5 new stickers on, shooting those 5 spots, retrieving them etc....I had been thinking about painting the bag white with spray paint and just using the stickers but it didn't sound like that was a great idea when I created a post about it. My stickers happen to be green as well. I should have got orange but the green were on clearance....
I have that same target and on about the 6th shot at 20 yards out of a Ravin at 440 my fletching went through the front cover. The target was cheap.

I shoot field points into the spyderweb and broadhead into the blob. I put old targets tight to the back of both for bsckup as eventually there is going to be a pass through
