I made a mini backstop using a 4' x 4' x 2' deep base made out of 3/4" plywood.I mounted it on HD wheels and filled it 6" from the top with dry sand.The bullet plate was 1/4" steel mounted on an angle (about 45 degrees) that directed the bullets into the sand about 1' from the rear of the base if the bullets hit the target near the ten ring.I experimented with the plate angle with a .22. I made a target hanger to hold a 2'x3' cardboard backer and stapled the targets to that. I used the backstop for .38,.22 and .45,thousands of rounds with no real problems.There is a bit of bullet splatter thet will extend outside of the backstop,so be prepared for that.The wall behind the backstop was concrete filled block.
