Hi all

I got a magnetospeed t1000 target indicatior in January and got to try it over the weekend.

It works by velcroing to the back of the plate and has a clear rubber periscope type setup that shines a red light when you hit the plate. Have a look at YouTube for how it works.


Anyway I tried it first at 500m and it lights up really bright - can see it with out the scope.

Then went back to 1000m and same deal - through the scope it’s super bright - definitely lights up perfectly.

Then the next day I went back to 1676m and at that distance it lights up perfectly even in the bright daylight conditions - of course at that distance you are watching it in the scope.
At 1676m you cannot see the steel plate wobble .... so makes it hard to call hits without driving to the target and painting it out etc etc. but with the t1000 It lights up making it super easy to spot hits.

If you like to shoot steel at distance - for $300 this t1000 hit indicator is definitely worth a look!!!


Pics show the plate and light - but sorry don’t have any pics where it is shining red after a shot hit - I was too busy shooting and having fun hahaha

Thanks D
Yer 500m was easy and 1000m was ok once I worked the wind out.
1676m was lots more tricky hahahah so yer took a few shots to get on the plate at that distance.

And here I thought just the sound of hitting the gong would be enough :blink:

I guess there is always a way to accessorize anything these days.

But if i t does what you want it to do then I guess thats all that counts.

Mid last year I purchased a Verney Caron 'Speedline' in 30-06. It was very much an anticipated acquisition. Even my wife who is pretty indifferent to the reasons behind my rifle purchases, with the mindset... They all look the same. (You can't blame her, owning 5 Steyr Scout rifles).

The Verney took her eye as I was showing it off to the boys, telling them I would like to fit it with a nice leather sling. We both searched the web later that night for a nice custom made leather sling to suit my new 'Speedline'... With her discerning and impeccable taste, I purchased a Buffalo hide and Rattlesnake skin number made by Danny Collins in the good Ol' U S of A.

Purchase complete my darling wife turns and says to me... "That's your Christmas present from me." She also requested I didn't use it until it wore it's new sling. :blink: :ohmy:

This was mid September! Work got real busy and Christmas loomed. But you could say Wife got in the way of shooting in the Verney's case...

It got a good workout Boxing Day. :)

Top gun - yer when you get out there in distance and the wind is blowing away from you, you can’t hear the hit from the bullet on the steel plate.

At 500m - yer of course you can hear it.

But 1000m plus, unless the wind is blowing at you, you can’t hear it.

I have heard hits at 1000m before when the wind is coming straight at me.

But when out at 1600m you can hardly see the plate move in the mirage and I personally have not heard the stikes when hit. So that’s where the light comes in handy. Or if you use a lighter rifle bullet - the light can be good too - like try hitting the plate with a 223 at some crazy distance, then it will light up even though you might not hear the hit.

Yer not sure about the CB and someone standing next to the target hahah :) but I do have a shovel with me I suppose hahah


Yer think It was $280 or something. But was also looking at 1 mike cameras - but they are way more cash - forget exactly but like $1k ish.

I guess if you get into long range stuff, nothing is cheap, each projie is close to a dollar anyway. Haha. So $300 really isn’t pricey. Try getting into quality night vision hahaha now that’s expensive!

The time saving of knowing you are hitting he plate vs having to drive around the paddock, across a valley to paint a steel plate is worth it for me.
Also if you have 2 shooters on the same plate, you know which one hit it - so that’s another bonus.
