Sounds good. Once you get it figured out and built show us some pictures. With my bread pan idea I figured when I get done shooting I could just empty the brass from the bread pan into a zip lock plastic bag. Usually when I go out I'm taking my 30-06, 8mm Mauser, 30-08 and a couple of SKS's. If your shooting a AR 15, you could always put up a fishing net to the right of you to catch most of your brass.

Yeah, I've been thinking about it for awhile. Thing is that I need to accommodate the mini 14, the AR and the Garand as well as my .22s. I'm going to start saving all brass regardless of caliber or reloading potential so I can recycle it.

I was thinking an undermount box so the top will stay flush, and you could just 'sweep" the brass to the hole and it will go in......

I put the shooting bench to the test today. It got great reviews feom everyone who shoot off of it. Even the wife who is only 5ft tall. She said the 8mm Mauser pushed her back to far so she preferred to shoot it standing up.

Where were those pictures taken? Every time I see photos like that, I get jealous. Do you ever have to worry about a backstop? At least around here we usually don't.

They are out in the California desert. There is a back stop. About a 6 ft burm that channels flash flood waters. Its great out here.

Cool. I have been to the Cali dessert. Victorville, near Barstow, I think it was. Starkly different than the landscape we have here. We shoot in a sandpit. There are 40' high sand banks there. Hard to miss 'em. But we also have a limited range. 100 Yards is pushing it.

That would tough. We can see 50 miles away here. We can shoot any distance we want, we just have to find a good clear spot away from the mountains.
