    IBC totes bullet catcher

    Been thinking of using the IBC totes. Cut a hole in the bottom with chicken wire to hold back the rubber mulch and let lead drop in bucket. Picked up some 1/4" self healing mats to line front and back of totes before filling with mulch. Gonna put bales of hay in front. All of this is in front of a dirt backstop. This setup would be for primarily pistol calibers for 25' range. Still thinking about what to do for rifle. Think it will work?

    Figure gravity over time. After a few years of changes in weather, etc, my hope 3as the lead would drop naturally to the bottom. Would be a lot easier than berm mining or easier than trying to find metal to make a trap.
