I think its pretty sweet. It has a slanted bottom so all the ammo runs to the left side then the PVC brings it all forward and drops it through the hole and then all goes to the right and collects in one spot. so no more digging around for ammo in a clumsy box. it is also notched on the top for a 2x2 board that i can attach my towels to for a quick change if needed.

    I've been trying to develop a catchbox with no sides for me to hit and ricochet off of <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">

    Well mines 20"x20"x20 so its actually a fairly large opening. especially since i get most of my shots within 12" at the very worst so it works pretty nice

    Thanks for the compliments i appreciate it. i had a lot of fun building it and trouble shootting problems. I also tried putting some chair foam in the back but believe it or not it was to hard after the impact with the towels and would bounce the ammo back out

    Nice job! Mines a rubbermaid bin with 2 towels folded up and screwd through the top of the box, through the towels and into a strip of wood, I have 2 layers of this. Make this new one 3 days ago and the towels are already starting to fall apart! Also has an extraction system but it's not that great. i just hang the box on my shed. But I hope to make a nice wood box with a stand and a better extraction system.
