Versatile Targets BY DESIGN!
Our BlastCloud Powder Shell targets work well with a wide range of firearms as well as archery equipment. They are ideal for long range shooting applications due to the large cloud of color created upon impact. For mid range, muzzleloaders and shotguns using slugs produce excellent results. For short range, bows with aggressive broadheads, pistols, and shotguns using birdshot work well with these targets.
My wife and I started this company shortly after we graduated from the University of Minnesota-TC. I have always had an immense passion for hunting, target shooting, and the outdoors which is why I decided to major in Forest and Natural Resource Management. The idea for the BlastCloud™ Powder Shell target came to me while I taking an entrepreneurship class my senior year. I was tasked with creating a new product from a Pringles can, and right away, I wanted to find a fun way to shoot it. Since then, I have been playing around with the idea and working to make improvements to the targets and launchers. I am working full-time as a Climbing Arborist, and I enjoy heading back out to the farm nearly every weekend to primarily bowhunt, target shoot, and work on a long list of whitetail habitat projects. We thank you for your support as we start and grow this business.
All targets are made with recycled paperboard shells. Designed with safety in mind, the powder is a blend of food grade cornstarch, FD&C and D&C dyes (food, drug and cosmetic dyes) and baking soda which is the same kind used for color runs.
