This is so easy it gives me the sh!ts, considering I just bought some before thinking of looking how to make them :oops:

You can do a similar thing with a plastic bag stretched over a piece of cardboard and painted black.

Good one. I wonder if it'd work just painting some signwriters adhesive vinyl? Be a good use for old stuff where the adhesive is NFG.

I'd say give it a go mate, nothing to lose I'd say. you can just buy that fluro yellow cardboard from the newsagency and spray it flat black, bang a fluro dot where you want em, it seems to do a pretty good job like shoot and see targets if memory serves me correctly (pretty sure I've done it many years ago) :thumbsup:

Yeah mate, I think any non porous adhesive covering like that would do the trick.

I had just bought a pack of 20 from ebay for $17 and had the idle curiosity about how hard it would be DIY, and bugger me, not hard at all it seems.

Had a thought. Why use tape and have the edges that need to be cut down, it seems to me extra work.

Then I started thinking, a4 plastic sleeve protectors. Insert the colored page in it. Or even slight paper glue stick if worried about the two surfaces moving.

Maybe I try my variation next time I goto range. Lol it can only fail

Well, they work.

The gusty wind is all over the place like a mad woman's knitting today, so I just tried at 100m, but they were well and truly more visible than the white paper I usually use.

Three ADI SS109s with23gr of 06H and my last two Nosler 50gr varmint with 26gr.

Seems there's always a vegan, doesn't want to be like everyone else :roll:

Yeah Scott, and as the normal way Mr Murphy's rules of the world dictate, I learned about it literally 5min after buying 20 store bought from ebay.

I wondered, after clicking the pay button, how they make them, which inevitably led to "can I make them."

Never mind, I'll use the flouro store bought jobbies for 300 and up.

I wish mate.

Hardly ever get 20min without bloody wind, let alone 20 days :lol:

8" diameter, self adhesive. The dots are for patching. 20 for $14, $3 postage and 4 days to get here from Palmerston in the N T.

Get out & try the sleeves now gaz...!!
(Demanding bitch arent i...!!... :lol: )

What about using baking paper...?

maybe...bright yellow backing, a layer of that waxed baking paper over the top, & wak a layer of black matt finish spray paint on that...?
Or maybe just the painted baking paper...? :unknown:

Id go out & try it now but im an hours drive from letting off any noisy lead spitters... :thumbsdown:
