    Hey Zane, that looks pretty neat. That man hole cover should get the job done.

    That is neat Zane...
    Speaking of saving trees. What we agreed at for our deer camp was to have our range by a natural ridge. We hired in a equipment operator who leveld a 100 x 75 yard area lined it with apple trees and then built our impact area and shooting platform.
    After 25 years of banging away on it. It was a great effort!

    Well since I got it set up, Ive found a few .22 pieces about 2 feet out to the sides.
    I also found (1) FMJ 9mm out to the side about 3' or so and thats about it.
    The .44mag lead nose is stopped instantly, also the .223 FMJ, .45acp FMJ, 30-06 ptsp, .357 Mag Hollow points and the 7mm REM Mag as well.
    The covers pretty well stops them all @ 75 yards.
