heavy gun rest

I am having a 338 lupa magnum improved built. The rifle will weigh approx. 65lbs. I am using the Mcmillan 50 HBR stock that has a 5"forend. I am looking for a rest with elevation and windage adjustments for this type of rifle set up. Does anybody have any suggestions. Thanks, Wildcat.

Try calling these folks and speaking with one of the teachers of the precision machining.
Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center
I bought two of the rests and they are well made and are stout.

Frank Grappone out of Clymer Pa. a Williamsport 1000 yard club member is who I bought mine from Phone #.
I think they were 180 or 200 but have all adjustments needed and will accomodate a wide forearm.
They are projects made by the kids I think in their 3rd year .
I will try and get a picture of one on here. My digital camera is an old model and I have been having trouble with interfacing it with XP os.

kregg slack - you don't hail from southern UT do you? I'm of slack decent. My great great granddad refused to join The <font color="purple"> NOT </font> well regulated Iron county militia which slaughtered nearly 100 innocent women/children/men on 11 Sept. 1959 near Cedar City.
