“JohnL57”You definitely want something to catch the pellets-I’m assuming the phone books will stop your pellets and the steel is insurance. 1/8″ should do the trick. If this is your bedroom be conscious of possible lead dust from fragmenting pellets, it’s not healthy to breathe lead dust and you spend around 8 hours a night in there so be aware! I use a cardboard box stuffed with old rags in my garage which does a good job containing the pellets, not sure how effective the phone books are at containing lead splatter.


Hello Sir, I agree with you and also thank you for pointing out the possible harm from the lead dust that I had no idea before. Right now I put a phone book in a cardboard box which can catch the paper pieces and pellets. The steel sheet will be placed behind the box in case that the pellet blows through the phone book.
