    Please forgive me, but sawdust stopping a .30-'06? I was taught way back in the day when I was studying the '03 in JROTC that that round could go through 20 inches of pine, or maybe I'm not remembering right. That was 30 years ago.

      I thought Japs and Krauts were M1 bullet catchers.

            Maybe that much weighs more than I thought or that volume has more pressure than I thought. When I think of sawdust I picture a light airy pile with the density like bread.

              Actually the saw dust looks pretty chunky like from a table saw cuttings, I'm sure wood dust from stock sanding would be too fine and settle down or be too low and having less volume/fill in the container so it wouldn't be as effective.
