    I've been spattering lead off my steel on my home range.

    It seems like a good idea to me, to find a way to capture and save the lead for two reasons.

    1 Re-use for reloading
    2.Prevent my Cows from eating it.

    Before the steel, I used LARGE stumps in front of the berm to capture and retain. Bullets passing through the paper targets would embed themselves safely in the stump.

    Perhaps a shadow box for the steel, with sand at the bottom. I'm thinking that the spatter from the steel, would hit the shadow box (2 x 6 ?) and drop into the sand.

    What ideas might you'all have?

    I've thought a lot about this, as we're gonna try to have a range on our property when we buy a house.

    So basically I'm subbing for updates.

    I started a thread a long time ago. I'll see if I can dig it up.
