GG,

Thanks for that . I checked that rest out and it looks like a good simple rig. Could you suggest the best place to buy one and have shipped to LA. I saw it on cabelas website.

Thanks

Compared to a one piece front & rear mechanical rest, I have more consistent results with front and rear bags. A rabbit ear rear with a bulls bag is fairly economical and very steady. I use Protektor model and Uncle Bud's brands, but they are others.

They don't sell bench rests and rear bags down under?

Urban,

Just not enough choice here. I started using a mechanical rest and found my groups improved dramatically. I also had to do very little adjustment to the rifle between shots to keep it on the target. After shooting with a sled I don't think I would use the bags again if I had a choice.

Cheers

Cabela's is probably as good as any. However, I would try and contact the manufacturer directly. Maybe that would be cheaper. I know the guy who runs the business and he is a heck of a great guy. I call him about once a year and tell him I need new rubber feet for my rest and he sends them free of charge and no questions asked.
