Are these traps recommended for the colt peacemakers? i only know fps of my guns..what would be min/max fps range required for shooting this trap?
Sure, the Colt SAA air pistols would be fine
I only see rifle targets available for this trap. Are there any B40 AP targets available for this size that will slide into the trap?
Very surprised by the comment below that the Daisy 747 with muzzle velocity in the 375 area across a variety of pellets doesn't penetrate. First of all, can others confirm this experience with a 747 or other lower velocity guns? BTW, was the pellet a wadcutter? Could that make a difference vs a rounded head? I would LOVE to shoot my 747 indoors, but . . . . Thanks, Mark
This pistol, producing 2 FPE or less, using around a 7-8gr pellet, and using a wad-cutter type, CAN produce bounce-back. Use pointed/round and should have no issues.
Will this handle bbs
I would not recommend for BB use, unless the gun produces at least 2-3 FPE. As an example, the Daisy Red Ryder CAN produce about 1.5 FPE, wich will result in some bounce-back. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION. And try not to expose the teeth as in smiling. My buddy had a bounced BB chip a tooth.
What velocity of .177 pellet does 20 ft/lbs muzzle energy translate to?
For an 8gr pellet, around 1060 FPS.
What is the weight of the pellet?
What are the best type of pellets to use with ballastic putty? I just purchased this item along with a Daisy Avanti 747 and pellets are bouncing all o Edit | Delete
For BBs, I would use the BB Bandit trap. Air Venturi BB Bandit Target...
BBs and non-pointed or round -nosed pellets DO tend to bounce back, but will mostly stay behind the backing cardboard panel until the panel is really shot-up. I would not recommend the trap for low-velocity BB guns, like the Red Ryder; actually nothing under 3-5 FPE. The Red Ryder produces ABOUT 1.5 FPE. I want the projectiles to actually do some penetrations, not bounce.
I would suggest round nose pellets. The pellets not penetrating is mostly due to the lower velocity of the 747.
