Lead targets

I have about 20 pounds of lead, mostly pure. I was thinking of melting it in to a pan and making a rectangular target out of it.

I have tried steel plates, but the sound of the ricochet is unnerving to me and I don't care to shoot at them any longer.

I was thinking the soft lead would allow the bullets to pass through, but you would also be able to see it move. (I am planning on putting a thick piece of steel wire in the mold and melting the lead around it.)

Anyone ever tried this? Any reason not to do this? Thanks.
