Since I figured out how to load pictures I will share my pellet trap idea. I used a combination of types I seen on line.
This is just a square plastic bucket stuffed full with rags with the snap on lid. I cover it with tape when I get to many holes in the lid.
Just tape your target on it and your done. I use a wood trim to help prevent ricochet from the odd stray pellet that might hit the thick plastic edge.
This trap will hold one heck of a lot of pellets. :D
I have shot my 23 FPE Discovery at this with no problems. Well over 10,000 pellet went into this one.

Also when the bucket is full you do't have to open it to expose all the lead dust just toss it and use a new one.

....Sorry I'm late getting here, but ideas don't have an expiry date.........I'd like to offer two words,..."Beer flats".... instead of making a wooden frame, just hang a beer flat over the bucket to hold targets......They are free and very plentiful and make great target holders .........................
