I’ve been chewing on a new idea for a silent pellet trap for a quite a while. That is I’ve been contemplating an update to the design of my old silent pellet trap. That design is essentially a wooden box filled up with duct seal putty I got at Lowes or Home Depot.
I’ve filled that thing up with lead and have painstakingly pulled out pellets and round balls until my fingers screamed at me. And I ended up having to add another layer for the big bore beasts I have including a Sam Yang 909s, and a DAQ .58 caliber Outlaw Pistol. Those two airguns along with the Sumatra Carbine in .25 lay waste to the duct seal. I’m now up to three layers deep of duct seal since the big bores laid waste to the previous two layers of duct seal.
Did I mention that pulling pellets out of duct seal is a pain in the behind? It is. And so I had a brain fart the other day, and came up with a way to easily clear out the old pellets, and recycle the medium that catches and holds the pellets.
But you’re gonna have to sit tight while I do some experiments, and see if my theory works out.
Till Then, Happy Shooting!
