If I were looking for a 22 cal trap, I think that i would get one of the commonly available 11x14 pieces of AR500 plate and simply mount it at an angle above a box of sand. To keep the ringing to a minimum, I'd put a layer of sand on top of the AR500 as well. Once upon a time, that armor plate was pretty pricey, but more and more, I am seeing it very reasonably priced and I'd bet that it would take 100's of thousands of rounds of 22LR to wear more than a shine onto AR500 used that way. Just a thought.

Oh ... I just assumed that you were talking about 22LR ... Pellets are MUCH easier :D I have found that multiple layers of old towels and rags are a great trap for pellets and BBs. If you shoot one spot enough, you will eventually thin it out, but if you just take a little care to move your bullseye around on the trap, you can shoot an awful lot. In my experience it doesn't take a lot of wood to make a bullet-proof backing and when they start to go all the way through the rags, you will hear impacts on the wood long before you will have a pellet escape your system. I have had good success hanging the towels from dowels as this allows each one to transfer the energy to kinetic energy in the towel's motion instead of into ripping the towel apart.
