Harris S-Series Bipod and Holland rear bag.

Also, have a set of Stoney Point tri-pod with Tag-along.

Use a Caldwell fire-control front rest with my target gun.

I like the FireControl a lot.

It's a bit heavy to lug around. But, it's the best of that type of rest I've found for the money.

By type, I mean that it fits a 3" target stock nicely (with the wide bag) and allows you to adjust elevation and windage with one hand and allows the rifle to track straight.

I bought it used on ebay and it had broken knobs from shipping. But, Caldwell replaced them at no charge. Apparently they have a lifetime warranty.

Harris 9~13" swivel bi-pod in front and a Bag I got from Defensive Edge for the rear suport. I shoot like this prone whether I am sighting in, practicing or hunting. Just can't get too much practice with your shooting position and set up.

I use my bipod, Harris S-type for hunting purposes, and a home made rest for load tests with rear bag.





Didn't take me long to make it. I also added some softer padding that is not in the picture for better control.

Nice ingenuity Tank.

You should make an adapter kit and sell that for folks to stick in their deer blind.
