So I wanted to start shooting 3/8th steel as opposed to peewee marbles that I have used since I first got into shooting as my backstop is in a grassy area and my marbles often get stuck in the grass and are a PITA to collect when I want to shoot lots. With this setup all I have to do is shoot, Walk up and empty the bucket into my pouch and away I go, The catchbox over all is 2 feet cubed I plan on adding legs to it and hanging the catch bucket underneath, Also because it is made out of MDF i want to add something to the front to help protect against possible misses that might damage the catchbox, I have a big sheet of foam that is used for extra bed cussion I will likely use. I will also need to weather proof it eventually but for now I will lug it back inside when not in use.


Overall cost was about $25

Thanks! I love hearing the sound it makes when dropping into the catch bucket, Lets me know the ammo dropped into the bucket and not into the grass!

don't they recoil out of the box when the taret is hit?
If you're shooting 3/8" and it fsomehow ails to rip through both sides of a mere sodacan, then either your bands are waaaaaay too weak, or you are.

So I decided that I need a catchbox. I dreamed one up and drew up some plans. Then, I decided to see what other people have done. Yours is almost exactly what I drew. Thanks for showing me what my finished product is going to look like.

I was thinking of making a catchbox out of a traffic cone with a towel jubalee clipped on the end if u get a hit it will do the same and roll to the end of the cone and even if u miss it will still travel to the end and collect in the towel only problem is I can't find any road works on at the moment lol

I love this design and this is exactly how I want to make mine. I have one question though. How do you calculate the measurements needed to make the funnel?

I think I figured out how to achieve this. If i cut out the bottom a few inches larger than the bottom of the box and draw an X from corner to corner and cut I will have a funnel right?
