Thanks everyone for your help and advise.  I had purchased an inexpensive field target, but it is too light duty.
I will buy one of the heavy duty field target to use as a pattern.  A small group of us have been shooting steel
knockdown squirrels placed on a 2x4 at 100 yds.  Squirrels weigh 8 oz. when hit with a .177 they don't always
fall off the two by four, but hit by a .22 Condor or one of the .25 cal. airguns they fly off!  Fun, we have 30, but
a lot of walking to reset!  Like the idea of the bell, sounds like fun with no walking down range to reset.  Our
group wants to get into field target shooting, but for now we are having fun.

Like these bell targets, great idea!  The guys with the .25 cal. who shoot with us would not be left out. 
However I would need at larger center hole! - Thanks Danny
