Bullet trap plans to ideas needed

I’m wanting to build a bullet trap for shooting on the farm. I don’t really like shooting a lot into the bank since it is inside the pasture. Plus I’d like to be able to recover the lead. Mostly will be 22lr but would like to shoot 9mm 45 and 38. Maybe 357 if safe. I’m thinking something similar to what you see at a indoor range with the angled backstop. I’d like something larger than the boxes you can buy on amazon. I have seen plans for the “funnel” type that guides the bullet into and around a pipe but I’m not sure I like that setup. I guess my 2 questions are what angle should the back be? And how heavy does the steel need to be? Any thought would be appreciated

You want to save time and money ?
My friend and I use to use a butt end of a log ! It lasted for a long time and when it did fall apart the lead was there !

5 gallon bucket full of course sand, the buckets last a long time, sift the sand thru a screen to get your lead
