If you haven't already made them, check out the inexpensive, but good ones from Beechwood Casey.
Their web site shows the whole line, called World of Targets.
I use their double spinners for centerfire pistol.
It's a four inch upper with a six inch lower that sells for around $45 or so.
.45s don't even faze them.
For monthly steel challenge competitions in your area, check out the Pickaway Sportsmens Club in Circleville.

I found some A400 scrap for cheap so I made 2 rifle targets and 3 pistol/shotgun poppers.

400 series will hold up to rifle, but it will pock a bit.

Been Tri-County Sportsmen located between Amanda and Circleville have a steel shoot once a year. I try and remember to let you know when I get next years schedule. Generally open to guest.

You talking about the steel popups?

Buds in Lexington Ky has a new popup range.

WARNING: Bring lots of ammo.

I can go through 200 rounds in a half hour with my 1911. and about double that with my FiveSeven.
