I do find it hard to hit them though.

Exactly. Pressing a .22" blank into the centre of the 10 and setting it out a good distance, say 30 metres, makes for a real challenge, especially with a pellet pistol. But it it and the reward is a very substantial BANG! I wouldn't want to try it at 10 metres or less, just in case the darn brass flew straight back in my face.

The chalk and caps are working well but they need something behind them to help disperse the chalk better.I tried a piece of wood but had pellets come back so i will put some duct seal on it for next time.
Speaking of duct seal,i was at the dollar store and saw these desk top punching bag things that i thought would make good reactive targets so i bought a few of them.The suction cup is crap so i taped it to a piece of wood and fired a shot.No penetration on the head so i cut it off and pulled the cup off as well.I drilled a hole in the wood and stuck a duct seal head on it.
It works great now.After you hit it it keeps moving for the next shot.He starts tilting when he gets lead heavy so you need to pick the pellets out after a few hits.
I also have 2 outdoor versions and the springs are a foot long so there is lots of movement.

Try shooting some paintballs. They make a nice splash and are non toxic and the rain will take care of the mess most times.
