Shooting rests..
« on: May 19, 2014, 11:27:53 PM »
So for over 30 years I've used a homemade shooting rest and it works pretty darn good. ;)

But I recently bought a Predator rest and it looks great but I still shoot the same.. ???

So what do you guys/gals use?

Lead sled,(did you not try it one day?) but I now have a  40 lb weight to go with it. No recoil. 7mm Rem is like shooting a 22.

haha yes I did.. ;)

Cabelas had them on sale a few weeks ago and The only reason that I didn't get one is that the backrest pad between my shoulder and rifle butt just seem a little weird.Yes there is a little less felt recoil but the biggest rifle I shoot is a 30-06 and the recoil doesn't bother me that much.Then again I only shoot maybe one box at a time. :)
The svt40 is a different story,100 rounds at a sitting. ;D

Actually I love shooting that little rimfire. ;D

Good topic Sonny
Sorry for the crappy pic, I recently upgraded my rests a lot more money could have been spent on the front rest but for hunting rifles not sure what the point would be they get blown out of the bags anyway.  Itís just a basic Caldwell front rest that I ordered 3 leather bags for from Sinclair and the rear bag is from there as well.   




These old Hoppes front rests donít work that bad either.
