Just out of curiosity, do you shoot only high powered rifles at this backstop or do you shoot slower moving pistols at it as well? Someone once advised me against a tire/rubber back stop because the slower moving projectiles might not penetrate and could bounce back at you. I have no personal experience with this, just an observation.

that is a good point. very seldom is anything less powerful than a 30-30/sks shot though.
thanks for the post

Wow ! Looks good. I'll bet .38 rnl from a two inch barrel at 25 feet would be too much excitement !:D

It looks good though. I'd say it will stop about any rifle round you throw at it.

My local range uses tire pieces for their back stop.
I think they just go to a rubber tire junk yard, grab a shreader and shovel them into the back.
