shooting bags

What is the best type of bag to use for the rear of the gun. I'm talking about the small one you squeeze to raise your aim or relax to lower your aim. What are they called and which is the best one? Where can I order one of these?

    Len has a great little rear bag here in the LRH store, another one is the 4x6 red tac bag that Sean at Defensive Edge has.

    You know what my favorite bags are? Homemade ones out of old bluejean pants legs and filled with sand. Sew up one end really tight. Fill about 3/4 full of sand, then sew up the other end. They work just fine. 2 in the front, 1 in the back. That's how I shoot all my groups, unless I decide to take the Caldwell tackdriver bag for the front, and use a sandbag for the rear.

    I use the bag Len sells here in the site, and I really like it, prone or off the bench, it works really well for my needs

    Mine are homemade. Some kind of stretchy material filled with rice. You can also fill a sock, twist the top and fold back on it self, (if you can't sew).

    Homemade. Sock filled with 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's tied off then put inside a second sock. Works great and is very lightweight.

    I fill mine with cat litter. The cheapest I can find.
