Does anyone know what is used for the mesh on those DIY pvc brass catchers?

I used mosquito netting on mine. Got it from a fabric store. It's a nylon material that has held up very good for 7 yrs now. It does have some marks from hot brass but no damage to speak of.

I have used the material from a nylon mesh laundry bag for brass catchers. You can find these bags at places like Lowes Hardware for under $2.

Excellent ideas and sources. Any suggestions on the actual construction?

I guess that would depend on how big you want to go with your brass catcher.

I guess you're right about that Bullseye. I think I will do a bit of research online and see what ideas I can come up with.

Thanks
