I'd like the full 30" splatter reactive target to pattern some loads with my new choke, but can't find anything. Am I that terrible of a google searcher or is there nothing out there.

Bonus points if it has a duck too. This is the closest I've found, and only available place is CTD, and I'm not supporting that company.

Found them on Amazon

A roll of 30" kraft paper works well. It's not Splatter reactive but each piece of shot makes a hole. Flip it over and they show up plenty good to count.

I used a 4' X 4' piece of cardboard. You'd be amazed at how many shotguns I've helped people pattern where their POA and POI were different, and they thought the entire time their gun didn't pattern well. They've also been surprised at how as little as 10mph of crosswind affects the impact of the pattern as well at 30 and 40 yards. Moral, use a big enough target you get the true pattern of the gun then determine if it's a fit issue or wind issue if POA and POI don't match.

U right about the wind, especially on them cripple swimmers, u gotta factor the wind

Dang, how in the world did you find that? I scoured Amazon and Google and never saw anything like that.

I don't know if you're that terrible with google searches, or just bored. It could also be google sensor ship.

$4 per sheet? Wow! I'm with those who say use paper and hold it up to the light to look at the holes. If I pattern a gun, I want to shoot a lot of patterns. Different ammo, different chokes, different distances, maybe even different guns.
Home Depot and Lowes sell in the painting section brown paper rolls used by painters to cover the floor. 35 inches wide. Take a yard stick, measure 35 inches, cut it, use a sharpie to draw a little bullseye in the middle. You now have a 35x35 target. Shoot. Hold up to the light. Will tell you everything you need to know about the pattern. (Unless POI and POA are way off).
Another option is free, if you are a deer hunter. Corn bags sold by many feed stores already have a target on them. Cut them down the middle of the back, unfold it, and you have a very large free target.

Idk what it was today. I'm usually a pretty solid googler, but today I couldn't find anything that the guys posted.
