I just bought a box of the gamo targets to try with my silent trap. I attached them with a clip at the top so they hang down over the duct seal. Perfect crisp holes with my non-pal rifle. The paper they are printed on is awesome! I wish I had tried them before. I'm drawing some extra aim points on them with a sharpie Or shooting the 6s on the target from 10 meters to add some extra aim points. Wonder if I can feed them through my inkjet printer to print some small targets on the backside?
Anyway, I'll recommend these if you want clean holes.

I wish I could find stuff like this in Canada:

Prices aren't terrible if you can ship within the US and go pick them up, but local would be better.

Before you get the heavy paper/cardstock, read the specs for your printer.
Some printers cannot handle the heavy stuff, so don't go and damage your printer.
The lighter 60 pound cardstock seems to work OK for me.

I backup my 20 pound copy paper with cardboard, and as was mentioned I have to move the target around the backer, so I'm shooting on clean backer. Once the backer is shot up, the copy paper will start to tear. It is amazing how fast you can collect cardboard for target backers when you pay attention to it.

I use a hole punch........pre punch all the holes and aim around the target. And I always act suprised how well my groupings are.......even out at 1000000 yards.

hahahahahahahahahahaha - that's like the farm kid, who shoots a .22 into a fence post, the draws a perfect circle around the hole with a marker - they're all exactly in the middle of the circle - shows amazing accuracy to anyone driving by. HA! I was the farm kid. hahahahahahahahaha

Best Wishes
