Shot recovery methods

Postby Jlk45 » Mon Mar 05, 2018 10:42 am

I remember reading at one point that TSS users were recovering shot in target situations. Makes sense given the fact that a lot of shooting with turkey loads etc. tends to be on finding the right load and choke combination or checking point of aim. I am wondering what recovery methods are being used?
This is new territory for me but recycling shot since is does not deform seems like the right thing to do. Can’t think of many shooting situations that afford that option.

I've never actually built a shot trap but there are good example out there to go by.

Basically, you build a frame where you can hang a few layers of rubber mats, felt, carpet etc and then with sheet metal in the back slanted downward with a trough at the bottom.

Thanks I was just looking for a starting point. Always have extra materal in my shop. Should be able to work up something. I’ll check back when I have an update.
