  • Robert from USA asked:

    What is the actual gauge of the sheet metal?

    • 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?

        • Tarasdad from USA:

          At high velocities pellets may (probably will) fragment badly. There's always a chance that fragments will escape past the edges of a target or punch their way back through. The vast majority of the projectile will be caught. I used one of these (under a different brand name) with my RWS Model 48 and had no problems other than a few tiny fragments escaping.

        • 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

        • Tarasdad from USA:

          Another option for you would be one of the Air Venturi Quiet Pellet Traps available here on the Pyramyd Air website. They use ballistic putty to catch projectiles. One has a steel backer plate for higher power. You should check the specs on both to see which would be best for your use.

        • Dan the Man from USA:

          No, they'll bounce right out. You would want to buy the UTG one: Leapers UTG Accushot Pellet &....
