Good looking range. What are you using for a backstop behind the KYL and targets?
Trying the horse stall matts. Cut one into 4 chunks for the test. One thickness doen't do much. Just added a second layer before this photo today. Hope to get out and see if I need to add more.

do the horse mats work are they 3/4? I always wondered if it cuase 'bounce'
One thickness barely slow the 22s down. Added a second layer but haven't used them yet. I have a pretty good backstop behind all my targets. I was just trying to eliminate the furrows in the grass behind the targets.

Second layer of the 3/4" rubber stall pad wasn't much better than the one. Just added layers 3 and 4. Hope to get out tomorrow for some testing. I am thinking if this doesn't work I will add a steel plate behind the rubber.

Most of the targets on my range are 1/2 or thicker AR-500 at 75', 50 yds, 100 yds and 150 yds. Shot some 30-06 AP one day and it did dimple a couple of my 5/8 swingers at 100 yds. Won't do that again.

Added a couple of rimfire bullet traps to the range. Cheap and hopefully effective. I hate having bullets rut up my range grass. These are easily moved and set at whatever range I feel like shooting the 22s. I know, the grass needs mowing. Whatta Hobby!
