Size:  2.08 MB First attempt. 4 ft. high x 10 ft long with catch trough. Deflector is nylon screen hung soft. Initial use catches about 50%.....Others bounce of and land on the ground under it in a pile......Using soft screen hoped to eliminate bounce.....Now at least I'm not combing the area for my brass.

    If it was tilted @ about 45 degrees it would catch most of the brass & tumble down into the trough below.

    That's good thinkin..................I'd try tilting both the vertical screen and the horizontal tray......less bouncing off the screen and also sliding into a tough at the low end of the tray with a bucket below............the brass winds-up in the bucket.

    OR...................shoot a revolver................LOL

    Now that's the best plan! I wonder why we didn't think of it sooner!

    Tarp too much trouble. And unless at least 20x20 won't catch all brass(EXAMPLE....My BIL's mini 14 throws brass about 20 ft or more to the right).....This is permanent(may be modified) and it works.

    BTW...I shoot a lot of revolvers.....But the auto rifles & pistols get their turn too.
