hi all i'm going to make a target box out of a little two tier book shelf i bought from giant tiger for $10.00. it's 23.6 inches wide and 21 inches high. i just stopped by home depot and priced the duct seal. it's $2.99 for a little 1 pound packet. if i do the whole back of this thing it's going to cost a small fortune for the duct seal. how thick does it have to be . for about 10 meter shooting. thanks. pete.

Why such a big box ?
If you slice the duct seal in half it should be good for anything shooting under 500fps.

Yes, Why so large?
Got one from Archer AirGuns while in the US and the size is
9 1/2 inches wide.
13 inches high.
7 3/4 inches deep.

Got replacement standard clip board to whole Targets at the Dollar store for ca$1.50.
Got 2 layers "Duct Seal" and it sucks in .177 at 800 f/s and .22 at 720 f/s.
Very Quiet and no paper cutting mess.

the size of it is because these are on sale at giant tiger. for $10.00. i wish i knew how to do pictures because if you saw them assembled you would probably agree they would make good target boxes for the price. i figured i could partition it off. one area for the paper target on a clipboard . another area' screw in a few hooks to hang some things and another area for cans and stuff. i think i'll just put duct seal behind the target part. and figure something out for the rest of it.

If shooting under 500 fps, a half inch thick is plenty. I used 4 brick,s of duct seal for a 8 1/2 x 11 target box.

Try an HVAC or metalworking supplier. You may be able to buy larger quantities for less. I seem to remember that stuff coming in 5lb bricks from somewhere.

We get duct seal from Fastening House with the company I am currently with. I have no idea how much from a supplier but like anything I am sure it would be cheaper there than say Home Depot. You could try Fastenal or Woseley (look for their electrical supply dept). I have only ever seen the 1lb bricks of it made by Ideal. Might even be able to place a direct order and cut out the middle man.

Found this post on making your own duct seal. Maybe this is a cheaper route?

Home Depot is much cheaper. I think it is around $3/lb at HD.

Go to an actual electric wholesaler, they sell in bulk for much less. The little home improvement stores are convenient, but low quantity and expensive.
