    I'd like to know the weight of a pallet of targets (63 cases of 135 targets, I believe)

    A target weighs 3.5oz x 135=472.5oz is 29.53 lbs per case x 63 cases =1860 lbs plus the weight of the boxes of course. Figure about 1/2lb per empty box = about 30lbs so 1900lbs per pallet plus the weight of the pallet. No idea what that weighs.

    Thanks Eric! - I didn't think to look it up in the rule book.

    John,

    Actually the rule book gives the target weight in grams not ounces. The book says 95-105 grams so I picked 100 grams which is 3.5 ounces and did the math from there.

    yup, after I read your post I went to the book and looked it up, and ran the numbers. Flattened corrugated cardboard boxes weigh 100 lbs/cy by the way. :)

    We used 2100 lbs when looking at tractors lifting capacity with forks. Jeff

    A few years ago I did it the old fashioned way, scaled 4 pallets individually and came up with a rough figure of 2000 lbs per pallet. Figures pretty close when the trucker picks them up also.

    Aren't biodegradable targets lighter because they're biodegrading? Ignore my humor or lack thereof. BT-100dc

    One ton per pallet is a reasonable estimate. If you put a pallet in the back of a pick up truck, as does acss, remember they are top heavy. I can tell a scary story about riding in the back of a truck with a pallet of targets.

    You've got to strap them down tight or the top layer or two will shift and decorate the road behind you! While it wasn't me, one of the other directors has first hand knowledge of this fact!

    I know some one that droped a case off the back of his truck when moving them to the trap. Still did not brake 100.
