Re-using FS rounds

What do you guys shoot into/at so that you can catch the rounds and use them again?

A big soft fabric sheet, like a bed sheet.

Ooh that's right, I think I remember someone saying that fitted bed sheets catch the rounds nicely.

Once I shot a FS round at a player and saw it bounce

But he called himself out.

When I made it across the field I picked it up and fired it again. I got a second kill from the same round.

The first player was about 15 or 16 and the second was late 20's. I would say teenagers "can catch the rounds" so you can "use them again". Try it next time you have a teen around.

I am considering 3d printing some reusable rounds

Of course, Alpha434 is likely to be able to make them both faster and cheaper than I can.

I use 3D printer FS rounds for testing and they work great
