    Want to fire form some brass for the 30-06. In the army we had shooting barrels to clear weapons apon entry to base camp...anybody use one ? I think it would be safe with 1/2 full of sand (worked in the army)...save trips to the rock quarry

    The Barrels work good. Just bury it about a foot into the ground at an angle. Make a cover with part of an old inner tube stretched across the opening in the cover with a slit in it to stick you muzzle in. I would put at least 2' of sand in it, more wouldnt hurt. COMMENCE FIRE ...... :eek:

    3' OF COMPACTED EARTH WILL STOP ANY SHOLDER FIRED RIFLE ROUND.
