  • Scott from USA asked:

    How close can You shoot at this pellet trap, with out damage to the trap?

    • Mark from USA:

      You can shoot at 10 yards. If you are using a big bore airgun (30 cal and up) you can damage the trap.

  • Douglas from USA asked:

    Anybody try shooting this with a .17HMR round? It's smaller than a .22 but the muzzle vel for the 17grain HMR is 2550fps and a 30 gr .22 is only 1650fps, if that matters.

    • pepegraves from USA asked:

      Can this trap withstand 165 fpe from the 357 Recluse?

      • Stanley from USA:

        Description states no bigger than 22 LR .

    • StringHusher from USA asked:

      If it can handle the Bulldog that's getting around 200 ft/lbs of energy, will it hold up to the Sam Yang Light Hunter that is .45 caliber? The KE is right around 200 ft/lbs as well, so the two calibers are relatively comparable in that regard.

      • Stanley from USA:

        Same as above .

    • David from USA asked:

      Will this trap catch and hold bbs?

      • Val from USA:

        I would only shoot Smart Shot BBs at this one. Hard surface can calways cause a ricochet with steel BBs. H&N Excite Smart Shot .177...

      • Michael from USA:

        It certainly will but you best be standing a good distance away just in case you get a ricochet. I covered mine with a bit of 1" think pink foam insulation and just tape my targets to that. Virtually eliminated any ricochet from BBs and only cost a few bucks.

    • BERNARD from USA asked:

      Can it handle a .357 bulldog

      • Mark from USA:


    • Bryan from USA asked:

      I have a Gamo pellet rifle with 1250 FPS. Will this thing stop lead pellets?

      • Mark from USA:

        yes, it can hold .22 rimfire too

    • Peter from USA asked:

      I shoot a Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk Air Rifle with a 950 fps velocity. It seems from the reviews that the pellets are stopped and do not ricochet out. Is this the case? Can I depend on it reliably trapping projectiles inside the trap?

      • James from USA:

        I have used this Champion Metal Trap for several years and recommend adding about 10 pounds of Duct Seal by Garvin Industries inside the trap. No ricochets, no noise.

      • Cory from USA:

        Yes, it will trap the pellets, it deflects them down and collects them on the bottom. That being said there is always a chance for ricochet with any trap so you should treat it accordingly when shooting.

    • 65BAJA from USA asked:

      Is this sturdy enough for a Marauder in .25 cal?

      • Terry from USA:

        I've used it with my .25 Marauder and it works great.

      • Val from USA:


    • surfski808 from USA asked:

      Can the inside be lined with duct seal putty to deaden the sound?

      • Cameron from USA:

        Actually, apply the ballistic putty on the outside (the backside) of the trap. Deadens the sound some, but keeps the putty from being ruined, then needing replaced every so often.

      • Val from USA:

        Sure, you would need to buy putty separately here.

    • Michael from USA asked:

      Can you mount this to a wall or post? Or is it only meant to be used on the ground?

      • Dan the Man from USA:

        It's only meant to be placed on flat surfaces.

    • glenn from USA asked:

      I need a trap for BBs, I have a drozd blackbird that shoots 800 fps, what should be a good trap for me. Thanks Glenn
