I use the Sinclair front rest with the adjustable top. One of the best investment's I've ever made.

If you say you're comming to the range this year, look up Frank Grappone. He sells a real nice windage top rest that's a school project. Real inexpensive with the labor cost and all being 0. His are under $200 sans bag. I got 2 and sold one to my brother. I'm not sure how many he gets per year, but he sold a pile of em. They are made by students at a technical school and are a real nice piece.

Get cordura bags with a rib for whatever you decide on.

Who makes one of the better front rests???

I am looking for opinions from the "big Dogs" on just what front rest is one of the better ones available. I would like to be able to use it for matches, as well as shooting out to 1000yds. Right now I use a 15" bull bag and rear bag, which works very well, but if/when I go to some matches this year, I will be needing a good front rest.

Please don't tell me about the Bear custom 2 piece rigs that are over $1000. If you do, I will invariably start to save for one [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
