Bullet Traps

Choosing a bullet trap is one of the most important aspects of designing and building a shooting range. To truly understand how important a bullet trap is and how it will impact your range operations and budget, you should think of it as a large lead processor. As such, your trap must do the following:

  • Safely, reliably, and consistently receive bullets under all conditions and in all calibers appropriate to your shooting and/or training needs.
  • Safely collect and store all bullets fired into it without affecting ongoing shooting and without causing environmental damage.
  • Safely and efficiently allow for the removal and disposal of collected lead and other debris without causing environmental damage and without violating city, county, state, or federal regulations.

Action Target provides four types of bullet traps to ensure that these needs are met:

Total Containment Trap (TCT)

Rubber Berm Trap (RBT)

Rubber Berm TrapThe RBT is composed of two feet of chopped rubber spread on top of an angled support structure to create a backstop to catch bullets fired into it.  The hassle-free design of the RBT takes advantage of the practical and beneficial properties of rubber, while eliminating the weaknesses and unnecessary elements of other designs.
