    Posting results of first time using these rubber mulch bucket traps. Had my friend use my 30 cal LCS SK19 shooting the 48g vortex strike pellets at approx 965-970 FPS, at Full Auto.

     

    This was at 50 yards in full auto. No penetration out back for sure. 


    I would call this project a success then. 
     

    My buddy had never fired a semi auto anything ever before, so as a warm up I had him shoot a single shot into this beer can that was filled with water. The large carnage opening is the point of entry

    Finally got the sheet metal taps soldered, all buckets primered, and had one can of marsh grass colored spray paint to finish one off. I have four more cans coming to finish the rest, and if I have extra, I’ll paint the lids, also.

    one bag of mulch compressed fits perfectly in a bucket. I threw in the square part of the bucket I cut out and slipped it behind the screen just because, ha ha.

    some pics of completion-

    I really like how these turned out. Nice work from concept to completed project.

    Today I finally emptied out one of my mulch bucket target set ups as the screen was all shot up and the mulch was pouring out. I think the screen, with a backing behind it helps to hold back the mulch longer from falling out. 
     

    I used the cut outs from the buckets as my backer the first time and it made it thru 15 full high capacity magazines before needing to get replaced. That’s about 400-420 shots. Here’s all the pellets strained out of the mulch-


    as it turned out, dumping the mulch into an inverted plastic garbage lid worked out as the heavier lead sifted its way towards the lower middle section of the lid as I grasped the mulch back with both hands cupped and shaking to shake out any pellets before I dumped the mulch back into the bucket. 
     

    oh, and the concept of pouring the rubber mulch into a bucket of water thinking the mulch will float up while pellets drop to bottom, don’t even try it, as rubber mulch also does drop to the bottom.

    So I simply replaced the screen and this time for my backer I had a roll of leftover aluminum flashing from a waterproofing job I did recently on my front porch beams, and this in combination with the screen will help to keep the mulch intact for another 400, maybe 500 rounds-

    Very nice Augie, those work skills really came in handy I see. I think I'd need the 55gal drum version for my shooting ability.
