Brass Matt Anyone?

A while ago here, there was a discussion on picking up your fired brass outdoors. Someone posted a link to something called the "Brass Matt", which was about 12' x 14', mesh design to let dirt fall through but not the brass.

Late Edit: Found it on the next page. Not sure why it didn't come up in the search....thanks anyway.

I have used a minnow seine but always keep a tarp in the truck. The seine does a better job in the wind, even comes with lead weights across the length. If you cut a 4’x20’ one in half you could have an 8x10 net with lead on either end making a perfect brass catcher.

I tried keeping a tart in the truck but she always wants to follow me into the liquor store. It's tough to keep a good tart locked up.

Didn't the lead weights help to keep the tart stationary? May need heavier weights!!

A good tart is hard to find.

Only the sweet tarts pick up brass, the others just make you itch.

Donít forget about the local fabric store (they have a manly section too).
Lots of netting by the yard far cheaper than a pre made item. Your tart can sew the edges if necessary.
Word of warning though...donít go in there all Ramboed up on the way to the range. You will freak out all of the nice little old ladies working there!

Reminded me of a project I had a long time ago, where I mounted a single shot 35mm camera on an RC airplane, I went into the hobby shop to get a servo to snap the photo. Eyes as big as saucers when I asked for a servo that I needed to be able to push a button once...

I still use heavy canvas cloth drop clothes designed for painting.
Some of them are VERY old.
Hot shells can all to easily melt plastic as they sit there cooling.

That's alright. You can keep that piece of brass.

I guess it doesn't need any Lemishine either now if you decide to wet tumble it.
