Could someone recomend a cheap way to make a good backstop for 150lb crossbow that the arrows wouldnt go straight thru?

anything that will stop a compound will stop a crossbow. if you are lookin to save money to do it, use a stack(about 2 feet) of newspapers bundled together very tightly(can wrap with duct tape), and put them in a box and then wrap box with duct tape to keep box together. P.S. dont let it get too wet, so that it falls apart. hope this helps.

Not necessarily true. I use block targets for my indoor range when shooting a compound. My crossbow blows right through them. Bag type targets seem to work best for me when stopping crossbow bolts.

For broadheads,all I can say is avoid the glendel buck target,which is for broadheads or field tips,I'm using a compound bow ,but either way it was complete junk for $200.00.those broadheads ripped her apart real quick.the cheap walmart deer target has held up to hundreds of briadhead shots.the cabelas bag target,I forget the actual name,but it's a real big white one,has held up to thousands of shots from my compound and my buddies crossbow.avoid the yellow jacket bag target

What ever you do, don't shoot your crossbow into a 3D target... I did that.. lets just say the deer had to go into "surgery" with an exacto knife to get the bolt out, and i was using field points
