Ok, I built a backstop with a 3 gallon square bucket, clip board and rubber mulch.  There is almost 12 inches of mulch from top to bottom, and I’m shooting a .22 cal 29 FPE from 23 yards and after 3 or 4 clips i see signs of pellet striking the bottom of the bucket.  I don’t understand I read that 6″ deep was enough to stop up to a .25 shooting 50 FPE???   Is there different types of rubber mulch i should be looking for this stuff looks like its for gardening.
