use duct seal, you can find at home depot or lowes.I built a box 12x16 out of 2x4s, I then put the duct seal inside the box, something like 8 packages( $2.99 a pack) then I put a face plate with big square in it on the front of the box made of walnut from flooring. I then screwed a clip board to the box and cut out a big square in the clip board, this allows me to hang my targets and the duct seal holds the pellets. GREAT pellet trap and quiet.Rob
Try the carpet stacked on itself rather than back-to-back. Someone has a trap made with about a foot or so of stacked pieces, compressed with two long threaded bolts and a top/bottom plate. Claims it will last for thousands of shots. No worry about finally punching through the layers.
Lots of info about pellet traps on this site. I reviewed many types before building mine, which is essentially an elongated @=S+S%^$# silent trap. I print targets on 8.5 x 11 card stock and they slip right into grooves built into my trap. I used duct seal because I wanted a silent trap. I can also recover the pellets by digging or popping them out of the duct seal if I so choose.I tried a clipboard at first but after one or two fliers pinging off the metal clamp, I opted for the the groove approach.The carpet idea sounds interesting. Might try it for a second long-range target build.JMJ
