Portable zeroing bench

Hmm. The fact is that the best table for zeroing is made of concrete, weighs a ton and is totally immobile. Anything you do will always fall short of that in varying degrees. For zeroing and portability you are pretty much down to what Rider says above though rather than a bipod a second sand-filled bag at the business end will be fine.

There are a few reviews on YouTube - general consensus is they are ok for the price, but not rock solid, which I guess is the trade off between rigidity and portability.

I was also looking at the stable table version (without the lite) more pricy but looks more sturdy (and heavier)

I had some scrap timber left over from some building work - something like 8" x 2". I made a simple L shaped bench which I clamp into a workmate. Not as good as a concrete bench but looks a lot more sturdy than that stable table thing. Admittedly I've not used one but it looks like a flimsy picnic table. I wouldn't be spending £177 on one without seeing it in the flesh first.

I bought the plans & made myself one of these for not much money. Just need a single sheet of plywood. Easy to make & stable. Way better than the caldwell offering. I’ve used it on uneven ground & once my arse is plonked onto it it’s nice & stable


I use one of these

Before the advent of quad sticks I used a sheet of plywood with a 40x40mm baton screwed underneath...the baton was gripped in the vice of a "Super Jaws" which having 3 points of contact with the ground was inherently unwobbly...much better than a four leg Workmate unless you are on a billiard table.

But if the portability aspect is most important... quad sticks with a fifth leg would be the easiest/lightest to carry.

I have one of those plywood slot together jobs

it’s solid … goes together in less than a minute, can go for right or left handed.
Lies flat in boot of car fine in bits
And I’ve used on uneven ground albeit bit soft and pushed it in bit …
Yes if very uneven it will wobble but seriously can’t fault it
