Hog Saddle

Has anyone used this or something similar? I'm sure I could build one for less money but it looks like a nice product.

I bet you could since it is on sale for $275.

Re: Hog Saddle

For long range shooting, I just can't see how that would be a solid enough rest. Just my opinion.

Re: Hog Saddle

I don't have one but have seen one in use. Good piece of gear for tripod shooting. The best thing I like about a product that clamps your rifle down is when in a position that calls for tripod use it holds the rifle for you...that's about it. Minimizes movement getting the rifle up into position, or worrying about it falling off (had that happen both hunting and performing a "stalk" in training).
As far as it not looking stable enough for long range shooting, ask RDM416 about LR hunting off a tripod. I beleive most of his hunting is with a tripod (or two set up) and he has plenty of LR kills under his belt.
I think the tripod under it would make it or break it.
