    Bag rests?

    Hi Looking to do some zeroing at a local range soon. Thinking of buying a bag rest for extra stability. Anybody able to reccomend one or do they all pretty much do the same? Thanks, Tim.

    I think they all do the same personally.
    guy at a range I went to made a high density foam rest. does the job and he still has 30 in his pocket

    I had some pieces of suede. stitched it into a cube, filled it with sand and tied a cord round the middle to give the v shape
    dont see the point paying 30 for sand!

    Plastic bread bags, doubled or tripled, filed with sand and tied off. Slip them into old socks and tie those off. Stack them as you need. Cheap. Moldable to any foreend, and if they wear out you pitch them. Does it look cool? Who cares. They work.~Muir

    Maybe......

    But that doesn't change the fact that they make a fine, adaptable shooting platform to test loads from. I shot the military rifle division of cast bullet bench rest using these bags because they were so easily adaptable to different forends. I did well by them.~Muir

    - cut the legs off an old pair of jeans
    - cable tie one end
    - fill with uncooked rice
    - cable tie the other end

    Presto hey, Robert is your Dad's brother. Bags for the cost of a couple of bags of rice. Works for me.....
