Re: Ultimate Tripod

Boyd, do you do a lot of long range hogging?
What part of Pa are you in?
Do you use it instead of a bench or in combination with it?

Howdy Boyd

When you shoot a big cartridge with a stock like that, can you shoot it free recoil, or do you have to hold it firmly into your shoulder?

Re: Ultimate Tripod

S1.The gun at 13.5 pounds with a brake is still a handful.I always held on pretty tight.One thing to know is the gun was built as a hunting gun.The barrel taper is light for an all out 16.5 pound gun.After 6 or 7 record round's it would start to open up.Quite afew times over the year it put the first 5 or 6 round's in the 7" range.The best the gun will do for ten shot's is 10"
