Default Carpet target ??

Going to replace the carpet in my house with hardwood and I want to make a large backstop target with the carpet when I remove it. I am thinking at least 4ft by 4ft. Question is how thick should I make it . I was thinking 18 inches should do it. I don't shoot anything over 60'lbs.

Great idea for field points....broadheads may be tough to pull out cleanly

It's going to be against a dirt bank so I will have a sand pit and styrafome trailer shipping blocks for broadheads.

Anything that goes all the way through will have the fletching ripped off it.

I'd make it double what you think. Then as it wears out you can just change it around so the holes don't line up.

I'm thinking 18" is probably too thick. I bet 12" would work
