Reply To: Upgraded Target
I built a pellet box/trap in June 2010 and have used it continuously since then in my basement.
I had never seen a trap other than the small ones they sell on PA, but I wanted a sturdy one and used all left over materials i had around house.
Never had an issue with it breaking down, ricochets or any issue what so ever.
It is pretty heavy, copper, wood, duct seal, and thousands of pellets.
I have maintained it by adding a little duct seal from time to time.
I am shooting it with a 177, 22 and 25, all Marauders.
This would not be a trap to move around unless you use a hand cart, but it is a great trap for its intended purpose, my 20 yard basement shooting range.
