All of them fit roughly into the same 5.5" dimensional size- kind of like math models from geometry. I have the Top Hat, Ground Ball, Dancing Ball & Cube.
They do not really react well to anything less than 9mm. I would skip the Top Hat in favor of another shape- not much action.
The solid Ball seems to swallow up bullets and holds them- not a downside, but kind of interesting.
These should be placed against a bermed target line and shot from a considerable distance away (50+ feet) due to ricochet. Many commercial ranges do not allow them because of antiquated range rules or fear of his ricochet due to improper target placement.
The solid ball can fly quite a distance, the others tumble 3' if you hit them hard with a .45ACP. Maybe farther if you're lucky. Shooting them with a 5.56/.223 doesn't cause much of an effect.
DO NOT use hollow points (of any kind, even a .22) as they will cause cookie cutter-like punch-out holes instead of self healing pin holes. The same applies to truncated bullets, so most .40SW rounds are a non-no.
Good product, nice price, adds the instant confirmation to newer shooters that they are doing well.
