Reply To: Rubber mulch shot box plans
In my experience, no. I think they just burrow into it until they come to a stop. It’s all a matter of absorbing energy and the rubber mulch (shredded tires) does that very nicely.
When I took the clipboard out to take pictures of it, I found some .25 cal pellets in decent shape and only into the mulch by about 1-1/2″. I’ve never seen any laying right on top (as if they bounced back).
