I want to know what you use to catch your Ammo. is is a home made box with angled floor, a plastic barrel with some old T shirts, or a 5$ tote from Walmart with a blanket.

building my own I want everybody's opinion on what is best.

3 sided frame out of 1x3 scrap lumber, with old T shirts for back stop. I have an old plastic dish pan in the bottom to catch ammo. Sorry I don't have any pictures, it's been put away because of cold weather.

Indoors I use a cardboard diaper box with the front cut out...an old broken arrow shaft goes a hanging hand towel....But, I plan to make one out of a plastic Rubbermaid tote...
Outdoors I use an old wooden rabbit cage frame (that used to house my daughter's pet bunny, which died by natural causes, btw)...And I hang a blanket...

This is a topic that is probably worth a Google search: something like, "Slingshot Forum catch box."


You"ll get a lot of information that way.

I always shoot 1/2 steel balls at my catch box at about 175 FPS. I use 2 tee shirts (I split them with picking shears to make 4 layers) and back them with one layer of rip stop nylon. I set these about 6 inches from the back swinging free. The tee shirts that I have in the box right now has caught about 15000 shots at this speed and have no holes. If more info is desired send me a private message.

I shoot all kinds of ammo from 6mm bearings to 5/8" glass marbles, and all kinds of inbetween depending on who I am shooting with. I have indoor catch box and outdoor box. For the indoor box I used a tote from the local salvation army store. The outside box is a 55 gallon plastic drum with the side cut out. Both boxes utilize multiple tshirts to slow the ammo.

I'm building a huge catch box that is something like 2x2x1m together with my neighbor right now. Will post pictures once we are finished.
