Fully adjustable, precision, front rest. 2-way bubble level. Empty weight is 13 lbs. But fill the hollow base with lead shot and it will weigh 35 lbs. A solid and stable platform for precision shooting.
Sold without lead shot. Buyer pays shipping charges.
Well, I’ve been saving my money for a Protektor Bumble-bee, but my question was about your sand. You say it’s”black volcanic”. Is that what they call “heavy sand”, like this: http://www.bullets.com/products/Heavy-Sand-15-lb-Bag/BL11180 ? At this point, I have sand bags front and rear made out of blue-jean legs like you mentioned.
Charlie, I have the Caldwell DFT and it’s a mighty fine piece of equipment. It does exactly what you are seeking a rest for. Just don’t shoot extra heavy loads with it if you weight it down heavily because it’s hard on the buttstock. I put 20# on mine and it still moves backwards, so I don’t think I’m overstressing my stock……….but then my…[Read more]
I’m looking for something that will hold butt of my rifle at lease 4″ high and I need short ears (I think) because my cheek rest comes pretty low on the stock. That’s why I was thinking along the lines of the Bumble-bee bag with short ears. I’ve absolutely no experience with one, so not really sure what I need. Heck, I’ve never even seen one in…[Read more]
Aw go ahead, Charlie, it’s makes a good huntin’ round, they tell me. Personally, they only thing I’ve ever hunted or probably ever will get to hunt is paper targets. As far as the 50 yd and 100 yd groups being close to the same………………I’ve not ever experienced it myself either.
Very informative, Sgt. Mike, thanks. I’m going to copy and save all that. Really appreciate you taking the time to give me all that info, even if much of it is confusing. I’ll study it and see if I can get it in my head. My bullet measures exactly 1.00″ and is a flat base, no gas check.
Interesting. Didn’t start getting good groups until I stopped resting the foregrip on the front rest and found a proper balance for itself. 7″ back from the muzzle has been perfect for me. I shoot free recoil, so the only thing touching the rifle is my finger on the trigger.
I agree I’m leaning forward. Been working on adjusting things so I sit up more straight today. I’ve raised both my front and rear rests to facilitate that. I also drew a circle on my table today and placed a 10 o’clock arrow on it so I get used to that position. Thanks. I was only shooting 5-shot groups working on finding a powder load, so…[Read more]

I think Tim means just were the shooting table is setup
so your body and table are setting level
Table was leveled with a bubble level. Drummer’s stool was at the edge of a wide angle lenses coverage and was tilted less than it looked. I don’t have the luxury of a concrete pad and table. I’m sure Tim…[Read more]
Okay, I understand. Only thing is there’s no level ground on my property. I’ve got tape marking exactly where my butt plate of my stock needs to return to after each shot and the front rest is setting in holes, so it doesn’t move.
I was kind of shocked when I saw the pictures of that mold. I’ve never seen a mold smoked that dark. I can barely tell when I smoke a mold, but have only done it a few times. I’m like Tim, lead doesn’t really stick to aluminum, so if the temperature of the lead and the temperature of the mold are proper for the cycle, the bullets either fall out…[Read more]
